Elwood hat by Kirstie McLeod

24th February 2015

Have you knitted Kirstie McLeod's Elwood hat? It's one of our most popular patterns, and now it's available to buy as a single pattern on Ravelry! It's a fantastic stash-buster for a special yarn: a chevron lace stitch pattern is interspersed with cabling, and it uses the tubular cast-on method, which is lovely and stretchy for a comfy fit. Kirstie says, “I really wanted to come up with a cosy hat design, that’s interesting to knit but also that would be fairly speedy! I had some Jamieson and Smith Jumper Weight yarn left over from another project, so I figured this would be just a perfect way to use it up. It also looks great in some other 4ply yarns – I think it’ll make a great gift knit, especially as it’s the sort of relaxed shape that suits so many people.” Click to buy it now, and you can view a gallery of lovely Elwood projects here.
