FREE Pattern Pick: Breezy Lace and Cable Hat by SweaterBabe

 Breezy Lace and Cable Hat

FREE Pattern Pick: 
Breezy Lace and Cable Hat
by SweaterBabe.com
(free ONLY until 7/26/16. On Ravelry too.)

Warmer weather doesn't have to mean no more knit hats. Not when you can make this lace and cable knit version in a light weight cotton blend!

This hat is knit from the bottom up in the round, so it's seamless and quick! A simple ribbed border transitions into a pretty combination of classic cables alternating with a beautiful intertwining leaves lace design. Reverse Stockinette stitch makes for a nice contrasting background stitch.

Shaping at the cap is done with decreases that taper the lace leaf design and create a pretty floral effect at the crown. The hat is just a little slouchy, so it can be worn pulled down for those who like a closer fit, or a little bit back on the head, so it slouches just so. It will be one of your most versatile and easy-to-wear hats! . . . >

Join the Top 5 Knit-Along!

TOP 5

It's time for some knitting, along with fellow knitters!

Above are the current Top 5 Best-Selling knitting patterns from my collection. Join us as we KAL these patterns on my SweaterBabe Ravelry Group (must be on Ravelry to participate).

[top down, left to right]

1) #230 Marine Layers. A lovely, decadent scarf (especially if knit up in the Madeline Tosh yarn, as shown!). Purchase pattern on SweaterBabe Shop or on Ravelry.

2) #223 Marrakech. A blanket with texture to die for! Pattern includes 3 sizes - baby, crib, and throw. Purchase pattern on SweaterBabe Shop or on Ravelry.

3) #215 Glitz and Glam Shawl. Simple lace combines with a elongated triangular shape to create this pretty shawl/scarf. The yarn used here has a glimmery strand, but many kid mohair and silk blends will produce equally beautiful results. Purchase pattern on SweaterBabe Shop or on Ravelry.

4) #222 Balboa Vest. A thoroughly modern, swingy vest that will carry your through many seasons. Drapes beautifully in the back and combines two interesting, textured stitch patterns. Purchase pattern on SweaterBabe Shop or on Ravelry.

5) #218H Hamachi Cardigan. It started as a blanket with an eye-catching stitch pattern. Rather than tucking it away for a future baby gift, I transformed it into a fabulous cardigan. Purchase pattern on SweaterBabe Shop or on Ravelry (purchase the Blanket pattern + the Cardigan Addendum).

Each KAL will run in it's own thread on Ravelry. Check out the KAL announcement thread on Ravelry to join in on the KAL action and to read all details (cast-on date, KAL giveaways, etc.)!
