Carolinian Hat by Kate Oates is going to be the next hat I knit for myself.
I chose Carolinian Hat pattern for several reasons. First I only have one ball of this yarn. And this pattern works with the amount of yardage I have. Second I just love the spiraling pattern of the hat. The pattern is on Ravelry and it is by Kate Oates. You can find her shop here.
Browsing through the projects tab on the pattern page to see other peoples interpretation of pattern and yarns they choose, is always interesting to me.
This is my ball of Malabrigo yarn.
I recently went to visit family in Pa for the Thanksgiving holiday and got to do some yarn shopping in person. That is something I don’t get to do much being on the road all the time. So it was a real treat.
I came back to the truck with 3 large storage bags full of yarn for all kinds of projects. They are all stuffed at the foot of my bunk and its fun to have so much yarn on the road.
