I love slipped stitches, and the thicker, nubbier texture they create.
Especially in the red version, the slipped stitches look just like tiny little hearts.
Thrummed Hearts Hat
-The numbers in the pattern do not stand for row numbers.
-This pattern is for the look of the cranberry-colored hat, with the main color making up most of the hat.
– The first time you switch to yarn B at step 3, simply tie it to yarn A. But make sure, when switching colors after this, that you twist the two skeins of yarn in a way sort of like intarsia, so there are no gaps. Ask me if you don’t understand, I know this is vague!
-Let me know if there is anything amiss! This pattern hasn’t been tested thoroughly yet.
-two skeins worsted weight yarns, in colors A and B, about 100 yards each
-size 5 circulars
-size 10 circulars and dpns
