My neighbor, Alberto, is just the cutest! I had a knock at the door, and there he was with a sad look on his face. His hat that he brought over with him when he moved to Canada from Columbia had gotten snagged and torn apart. Since he’s always chatting with Curt and noticing all his lovely hats, he thought I would be the best person for his quest for a new one.
With this request, I let him pick out the colorway he would like me to use. He chose this stunning Cursed colorway from Tiny Human Knits. I got cracking on a design right away, so he doesn’t have to go too long without a cozy warm handknit hat.
Worked in the round, Alberto contains written directions and charts. Curt is seen here wearing the medium size and has a 22” (56 cm) circumference head. Alberto is meant to be worn with the brim folded up or as a slouchy hat.
Alberto is written to be worked on circular needles. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method. However, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles throughout instead.
