Pattern: Honeycomb Twist Hat

In my second installment of the Honeycomb Twist saga, I knitted a hat.  What I really love about this hat is the decreases.  I had some doubts of how it would work out and initially tried to change my original charting, but I ripped it back and knit it the way I charted it and it was awesome.  Don’t doubt your first impression!

It just flows so nicely into the center.  Love love love.

The texture is just awesome too.  The cables/lace stand out nicely against the purl stitches.  I’ll be making this again, but in another color.  Yellow just isn’t my thing.

Cables and lace combine to create this wonderfully textured hat. Patterned allover, the ribbing transitions organically to the lace and cables, while the crown decreases are incorporated into the cabling, creating a smooth, clean movement toward the center of the hat.

Directions on how to make the pattern slouchier, if desired, are included into the pattern. As always, there are written and charted directions, plus information on how to get the most out of one skein.

    Brilliant design, even more appreciated because of the story behind it. I do like how you incorporated the ribs into the pattern, and how cool you worked up instructions for a slouchy one, too!

      Thanks! I should probably say it’s more or less extra slouchy, since it already is quite slouchy as is.

      I seriously love your snowflake chart. Very pretty work.
