Boston Mix Hat—from Maria

Boston Mix Hat—from Maria

This thick and cozy hat is made from the Schachenmayr  bulky Boston Mix--new this month.  I decided to make the pattern given on the label, because it was a bit slouchy, but had an interesting texture. I used 6.0 mm circulars for the band and 6.5mm for the rest, as stated in the pattern.  I finished up with dps for the decrease rows. The pattern consists of a 4 row repeat of knit rounds alternating with rows of slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn in front then purl so you get the look of the yarn carried in front.   Quick to knit, maybe 5 hours, and easy to see where you are in the pattern, just in case you put it down without marking your place.  Of course we'd never do that! The result is a snug, stylish, and cozy hat.  I decided to hi-light the blue in the yarn with one of our fun, faux fur pompoms.  The yarn retails for $13.95 for a 100 g ball and is 84% Acrylic and 16% wool, and comes in some great, self-striping colours. Happy Knitting.
