After finishing my Throwback Sweater, I decided I want a quick knit- or as someone on Instagram brilliantly put it, a post sweater pallet cleanser! I knew I wanted to use my new colorway, Divine Feminine in Everyday DK because I had a skein all caked up from my swatch.
I have so many hat patterns in my Ravelry favorites so it was easy enough to narrow down my search based on my yarn requirements. I ALMOST cast on another Rikki hat, because that’s always a perfect DK weight knit, but I thought maybe it would be better to try something new.
Wurm has been in my favorites for YEARS now and so I thought I’d better give it try. I had previously overlooked this design because it calls for sport weight yarn, but I thought I’d try subbing in my DK weight and see how it would work. I didn’t do a swatch for this one, I just decided to dive in and hope for the best. Thankfully it worked out perfectly for one skein of my Everyday DK weight yarn with the recommended needle sizes.
The folded over brim (with no ribbing) is on this hat is probably my favorite design feature. The fact that there are 3 size options available means you can get a great fitting hat with a brim that won’t leave a mark on your forehead, but creating enough of a band so the hat doesn’t fall into your face. I went with a size medium for my 55 cm head, which fit perfectly. It also fits my 11-year-old daughter really well too, just with a little bit more ease.
Next the combination of purled and knit sections makes the hat create a sort of accordion effect on your head making for the perfect slouch. The way the pattern is written it’s very easy to modify the amount of slouch you are hoping to obtain. I followed the pattern suggestion for length and found it to be just right!
I am so glad I decided to give this hat a go. It’s definitely my new favorite for this winter-that is if I can get it off my daughters head!
