Knitscene Winter 2015: Northern Hat

I mentioned last week that I had the great pleasure to write the designer profile in the recent issue of Knitscene, Winter 2015.

I've also been lucky enough to have a new pattern published in this same issue as well!

It's the Northern Hat.
It comes in three sizes: 19, 21, and 23" head circumference.
It also features some fantastic deep ribbing so you can double up on the rim, and attractive texture and colourwork chevrons. It's a pretty traditionally shaped hat, with a fun bit of contemporary pop with twisted stitches outlining those colourful chevrons.

This is totally a quick knit! Worked in two pieces, it's ideal for using up small scraps of lovely yarn; get creative with those chevron colours!
