I did not expect this hat to knit up so quickly.
Spiralini Hat by Jane Tanner
This was a very simple pattern with beautiful results. I made the size medium. I substituted 1×1 twisted rib for the ribbing in the pattern.
Valley Yarns Haydenville
60% merino wool, 40% microfiber
Colorway – Grey
0.70 skeins = 154.0 yds used
This yarn is so soft. I have used Valley Yarns (WEBS, http://www.yarn.com, house yarn) before, but never this line. The combination is perfect. The wool makes the yarn easy to knit due to its’ elasticity. The microfiber makes it buttery smooth and shiny. I hope it holds up well through use and laundering.
