First up is the Drifty Hat. A dash of whimsical, with a healthy serving of wool, and you’ve got a very fun design. The shape of the hat is simple – rolled brim with spiral shaping at the top. Knit with Lamb’s Pride Bulky, this is a very quick knit.
The pattern also includes instructions to work the hat in a solid color (or a variegated yarn, or you could even try stripes!), because I think this basic shape works for so many people, even if they don’t want a fence around their noggin.
As with all the patterns in the book, the hat is paired with a matching pair of mittens.
The cuff on the Drifty Mittens is flared and like the hat, has a rolled edge. These are warm mittens, and they would make a great addition to any winter wardrobe.
The solid-colored version is also included in the pattern:
If you’re looking for a quick knit – maybe you’re beginning to think of holiday knitting? – then you’ll love this pattern.
