I'm really feeling the hat knitting lately. I'm working on wrapping up the additional sizes of Meadow Trail and it has been itching to cast on something small and cozy. So in recent Ravelry wanderings I've found a few patterns to share with you that feature colorwork. They all come in sizes to fit small children to adults, which is a huge plus I think. Especially if you have a kiddo with a large noggin or are into the matchy-matchy thing (no shame in it!).
I am really in love with the pops of color this hat creates! What a fantastic way to use up those special skeins we all have. Even better, this pattern comes with directions for a hat in either sport or worsted weight, perfect for stash diving. With three sizes from toddler/child to adult there's a fit for anyone. I also really like that Heidi uses the very stretchy German-Twisted Cast on. It's great for cuff down socks and of course, hats!
This hat is not only full of seasonal spirit, it's for a good a cause. Jenny and her family will use the money from this hat to help a family in need this holiday season! The hat is knit in worsted weight yarn so even if it's your first go with colorwork, it will be quick and with six sizes, you can make one to fit every single person in your family.
This lightweight but surprisingly warm hat was knit using the Fibre Company's Road to China Light (can I knit everything forever and ever in this yarn?). The colors are dynamic and really help to make those little fish pop. The stranded colorwork pattern is simple enough for an adventurous knitter to take on and will knit up in a flash. It also comes in 4 sizes from baby to adult so knit as many as you need!
