Free Pattern Release: Tributary Hat

I'm so glad I can finally show this to all you folks!  This is my Tributary Hat pattern, which is now live in the December 2017 issue of Knotions Magazine!

This hat originally came from me playing around with different cable swatches.  I loved this one so much; I wanted to feature it on something!  It was originally designed for a friend of mine who wears winter caps over visors and baseball caps, so I wanted a hat design that had enough positive ease to accommodate that.  After some experimentation, this hat was born!

The cable band is knit first, working flat, and using an optional provisional cast on.  The hat is then picked up from both edges of the cable band to form the ribbing and the crown of the hat.

The cable band is shown going around the head just above the ribbing. It is a Celtic knot style cable that runs end-to-end around the circumference of the hat. The top of the hat has gathers where the stitches were pulled in

The sample shown was done in *Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran 100, which is a blend of 85% Merino, 10% Silk, and 5% Cashmere.  Sample was knit in the colourway "Purple."

I do hope you all enjoy the pattern! This was my first time publishing with Knotions Magazine; and I've had a wonderful time doing so! I'm really glad I can finally talk about this pattern -- unusually for me, I -wasn't- knitting until the last possible moment, so this has been sitting ready-to-go in my box of yarn things for a while now. 

So, thanks for checking out my newest pattern, and  until next time, folks!
