Knitting a hat for my husband is a joy and a challenge. He doesn’t like anything to itch, he doesn’t like it to be too loose or too tight. It has to be warm but not too warm that he is uncomfortable. Several year s ago I came across Stephen West and his hat designs. I chose to make Helm using a wonderful yarn call Huasco DK by Araucania yarns. This is 100% Extra Fine Merino, Hand Painted and Spun in Peru. The pattern uses the magic loop method, short rows and a very easy to learn cable. If you would like to make this hat I have added an easy link to the store. ( I have enough yarn left over to make a pair of fingerless mitts)Buy Now
I hope you enjoy making this hat as much as I did.
