We are very excited to release our first Happy Knits free pattern, designed by Sarah herself. Introducing the Rikke Hat:
This hat was designed for DK weight yarn, and both of the photographed samples were knit out of Madelinetosh’s new Tosh Merino DK. The hat takes only one skein, and is a great choice for both semi-solid and variegated colorways as the garter stitch design helps to prevent pooling. Note: Other popular yarn choices for this pattern are Tosh DK and Malabrigo Rios.
For those of you wondering, Rikke is a wonderful globe-trotting customer of ours who was the first one to test knit the silver sample for Sarah, and the hat is named in her honor.
