Philip

$5.00 USD



Curt had requested I knit his dad, my father-in-law, a hat for Christmas, which I was quite happy to oblige. I asked Curt what color he was looking for, to which he requested blue, and set off to pull out all the blue yarn from my stash for him to consider (I’m sure you’ve all been there lol!).

He instantly picked out the skein of “That Blue” dyed by Small Fish Yarns. Coincidentally, the dyer is just north of Edmonton in St. Albert, which is local to where Curt grew up. It’s like the stars aligned and this beautiful yarn was meant to be a hat for Phil.

Philip – This hat pattern is worked bottom-up, starting with the brim, followed by the body, and then decreasing for the crown.  This hat pattern has multiple sizes as well as both beanie and slouchy versions – so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit regardless of your personal style.

Worked in the round, Philip contains written directions and charts. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method or DPNs (depending on your knitting preference).
