Heart in my Hands Hat
Worked in the round from the brim to the crown, the pattern comes in three sizes and the contrasting spines on the crown decreases highlight the hearts nestled there.
There are two design options for the main body of the medium size hat.
The corrugated ribbing is given as both charts and written instructions. The main stranded colourwork is charted only.
The full Heart in my Hands collection of hat, cowl and mitts (with standard cowl and large hat) can be completed from one skein (450m) of each colour of yarn.
