Today I am so happy to show you photos of Dale’s finished Reykr Hat!
It’s made with Woolen Rabbit Kim’s fabulous WW Kashmir in the color Forever In Blue Jeans. This yarn is super soft and wonderful to work with and the name of that colorway, well, it truly describes Dale’s lifestyle. And mine, too, for that matter.
The pattern is super simple, it’s basically 1X1 rib for miles. Or maybe it just seemed like miles to me because I knit this one twice. I swear I checked my gauge and calculated accordingly but at some point while I was knitting it the thing just got too big. So I ripped out about 10 inches and started over. The good news is that with less stitches it went faster.
And the best news is that it fits and it’s warm. Dale has a lot (really a lot) of winter coats and this navy blue goes with just about all of them. The hat is slouchy and warm and checked off all the things Dale wanted in a hat.
A day or so after I finished it we had a very pretty snow storm and it made for the perfect setting for these photos. Dale’s Reykr Hat. I hope it keeps him warm and dry for a super long time.
