Just in time for last-minute gift knitting, I have a new hat pattern coming out this month, and it's available exclusively at Knit 1 Chicago!
The Zopfmuster Hat is designed especially for multicolored hand-dyed yarns and is knit with 1 skein of Mountain Colors River Twist, shown here in the Spring Creek colorway. For more pattern info, check out the Ravelry pattern page here.
The large cable motif won’t get lost even in the craziest of colorways, and it’ll keep you interested as you knit. You can make the beanie style hat as shown here, but you could also add some pattern repeats to make a slouchier version thanks to the generous yardage in River Twist. Fun fact: Zopfmuster is the German word for cable stitch!
The launch party for this kit is Wednesday, December 14th 6:30 - 8:30PM at Knit 1 (3856 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60613) - please drop by to say hello!
You can preorder your kit here online; Knit 1 offers in-store pick up, but they will also ship to you if you aren't located in the Chicagoland area.
You can favorite/queue the pattern here on Ravelry, and if you knit the project, be sure to share your projects on social media using the #ZopfmusterHat and #1knit1chicago hashtags!
