American Wool Series

Sunday, November 6, 2011


As soon as the weather starts to take a drastic turn toward chilly I have the urge to knit all kinds of warm, bright things to keep the cold at bay. I also have the urge to buy waaaay more yarn than I could ever reasonably knit in one cold season. Don't we all? I saw this color of Noro Silk Garden (#349) and knew that I needed to knit a hat out of it. But not just any hat, a hat with simple texture that would show off the awesome color changes of Noro. Voila, Turning. To knit this hat you'll need two balls of Noro Silk Garden and US #5 and US #8 needles. And the pattern, of course! I'll give away one pattern on this here blog (you'll need to be on Ravelry for me to gift it to you) to the reader who comments on what color of silk garden (or alternate yarn) that you'll make your hat out of. Deadline for the giveaway is, hmmm, next Sunday, November 13th.

If you can't wait until then the pattern is available in my Ravelry shop for $3.00.

Big thanks to iknityouknot for helping with test knitting and picture taking. You're the best!


  1. I know the answer! It's uh, hum, well anyway it's beauteous. Love it. And a very good picture of you I might add.

  2. congratulations on a beautiful hat ... and the pattern! I have some silk garden in my stash, but I think I'd choose lorna's laces shepherd worsted - red rover - a great tonal red for the winter!

  3. It's beautiful, and so are you! Love the yarn, ooh and the earrings <3 You rock so much!!
