Whee! My Santa Cruz Hat Pattern is out on this month’s issue of MagKnits! I hadn’t expected it until next month, so this comes as a lovely surprise. I expect I’ll be doing a little happy dance for the rest of the dayâ€”perhaps the rest of the week.
I went on a hat-pattern-writing binge last summer and the Santa Cruz Hat is one of the results. At the time, I wanted to play with different lace stitches to make hats that would be suitable for the weather here where I live on the central California coastâ€”that would add a touch of warmth and keep the wind from blowing one’s hair in one’s eyes, but without bringing on hyperthermia.
I’d love to hear what you think of itâ€”and to see photos of any version of it you knit up. Please do share!
P.S. The model is my former student, Maryam, who’s now preparing for law school.
