Three New Hats

This past January was the coldest of all Januaries for the past 53 years in Bulgaria, so I spent it knitting hats with polar fleece.
The Red Pome is for my friend to whom I gifted the red Shells & Tide shawl. It's the same color, though the camera might make it look different.

Pattern: Red Pome (based on a chart from Internet)
Yarn: Alize Lanagold 56, 100g
Needle: 3.5 mm, 4 mm
Time to knit: 4 days

Rib - 100 stitches, 22 rows 2x2, increased to 120 sts for the body - 10 chart repeats of 12 sts each.
36 rows of body, 12 rows of crown decreases.

The hat follows the measurements I used for Gaby's purple hat and has a polar fleece inside for extra warmth.

The second hat is a repetition of Gaby's Rigsby for a friend - she asked for the same pattern and the same color, so nothing new here.

Pattern: Rigsby Pom Pom Beanie
Yarn: Alize Lanagold 111, 100 g
Needle: 3.5 mm, 4 mm
Time to knit: 4 days

The third hat is for me - a black cabled beanie with an ecofur pom pom.

Pattern: 12-sts Cabled Beanie
Yarn: Alize Lanagold 60, 100 g
Needle: 3.5 mm, 4 mm
Time to knit:  3 days

Rib - 98 sts 1x1 for 20 rows, incr. to 144 sts - 12 cables of 12 sts for 36 rows,
12 rows of crown decreases. I made a polar fleece for this hat too, but I haven't attached it yet, as the stitch pattern is quite dense and the hat is pretty warm as it is, as was tested during our hike on Saturday.

  1. Terrific beanies! While I love purple and love a good neutral like that black one, that red really draws my eye.

  2. Coldest January in 53 years! It does sound pretty extreme! What a great idea to add fleece to the hat - I am sure it was worth the extra work, must be so warm! Love how incredibly fast you are with your accessories!

    1. Thank you, Alina! The fleece is really worth it, especially when the temperatures drop to -20C, as it happened this January too often.
