The Hat Gallery

Welcome to the hat gallery!


        This is the Spectrum Tam by Beverly Roberts. I knit this out of Rowan Kidsilk Haze and Lion Brand Silk Mohair (the orange is the Silk Mohair). I wanted a striped hat, so I didn't follow the pattern exactly, but I think this is my favorite hat I've ever knitted. And it looks good on everyone—even me!

        This is the Faux Isle Hat by me. It's a free pattern, so click on the link if you haven't gotten it yet. This close-fitting beanie looks best on the heart-shaped gals, and I think it looks cute on Audrey, too, but not on me—it's a bit too tall, as you can see! (But in the winter when you need a hat, who cares?). Mimi knit this hat from Noro Silk Garden and Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran.

        This is the Not a Feather Cap by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, and it's a new FREE PATTERN! Cecily knit this from Classic Elite Princess. This is another close-fitting hat that looks best on the heart-shaped or oval-shaped folks. If you're a roundy and you have a shock of curly hair like Audrey does, though, I think you could pull it off (or on, if you will!).

This cute cap can be done either in the round or flat. The hat was a Christmas present designed by Cecily Glowik MacDonald for her co-author and friend, Melissa LaBarre, and the pattern is being made available here as a free gift to Knitting Daily readers. Cecily and Melissa's forthcoming book, New England Knits: Timeless Knitwear with a Modern Twist  will be released from Interweave in July 2010.

This is the Side Slip Cloche by Laura Irwin, available in the book Boutique Knits. There are two versions of this hat, one in blue Austermann Natura and one in green and light blue Artyarns Silk Rhapsody Glitter. This popular pattern is wonderful—the design is so cute and it looks great on round, oval, and heart-shaped faces. This one was a favorite for all of us.
