Slip stitch pattern on a hat from Hedgehog Fibres, an independent artisan fibre and yarn dyeing studio found in County Cork, Ireland (download a free pattern). The yarns used for “Citadel” include Hedgehog’s very own Blue Faced DK and a pure cashmere lace. As can be seen from the pictures below, this hat has a lining, is reversible and therefore, very warm.
Round 1: *k5, p3* around.
Round 2:*Slip 5 with yarn in front, k3* around. Keep yarn loose when slipping the 5 stitches to prevent puckering of fabric.
Round 3: *k5, p3* around.
Round 4: k2, *k1 from under slipped strand of yarn two rounds down, k7*. Repeat from *.
Repeat rounds 1-4 (12 times).
What drew me to this pattern is how well it pops especially with this yarn. The pattern is able to be seen and stand out in all of its glory.
