Last winter I made a pair of Treppenviertel socks. I thought for sure I had made them last summer, but it turns out it was almost a full year ago . . . further confirmation that I'm useless at keeping track of time.
I loved making the Treppenviertel socks, and they've become a favorite pair this winter.
When I discovered the companion hat a week ago, I knew I had to make it.
This pattern is straightforward - rounds and rounds of knit and purl combinations to create a maze of ridges. The design includes two options for the top of the hat.
I opted for the version with the point.
Fascinating. I know. I'm easily entertained.
The yarn is Lillian, colorway Ribbit. Springy Merino is a good match for this ribbed pattern. This hat is bound to be a favorite just like the socks.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest last week. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the comments. People are working on a variety of items - everything from baby garments to socks to sweaters and shawls. It's interesting to note that a fair number are knitting for themselves - probably as payback for holiday knitting.
Congratulations to Debbie, the winner of this contest. Be sure to follow along for another contest coming up later in the month.
