Say "I love you" with a Hat

What do a hand knit felted fedora, bobbled tam, floppy toque and a beanie all have in common? They all say, "I love you."

Felted Fedora

Knit these 3 fun, fashionable styles from Cathy Carron in a bright shade like she did, or choose a more classic hue. With it’s rolled brim and jaunty feather accent, the bucket style Felted Fedora has dual vintage modern appeal.

Floppy Toque

And the Floppy Toque is quick and easy knit, worked circularly from the top down in stockinette stitch that switches over to a basic rib at the brim, it's an ideal beginner project.

Bobbled Tam

While bobbled lace crowns the carefree Bobbled Tam, quick decreases at the top form the pleats; a twisted K1, P1 rib keeps the brim close-fitting at the temple.

And these 4 new designs by Woolly Wormhead are all knit in yarns I carry, that are also on sale.

Rubbish Mojitos

Both of these designs include 3 sizes and are knit in only 1 skein of a Malabrigo Yarn. Rubbish Mojitos is a modern, stylish slouchy hat designed specifically for Malabrigo Sock! Traveling stitches work their way around the body of the hat, coming towards the crown in a spiral pattern. The deep brim provides comfort and warmth.


Lucy includes options for a chullo style with earflaps or a regular beanie version. Knit sideways, in Malabrigo Merino Worsted, using a provisional cast-on and kitchener stitch for a perfect, seam free finish, Lucy makes the most of the lace pattern with the unusual construction.


And the gentle leaves that grow out of the brim adorn the body of Woolly Wormhead's Limpetiole, and graduate as stems of twisted knit stitches towards the crown. Drapey and slouchy, this beret is full of charm and knit in two skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino.


And Castiel is named after the Angel of Thursday, this beautiful lacy hat is both slouchy and delicate. Quick to knit in one skein of Lorna's Laces alpaca and silk yarn Honor, it grows up from the ribbing in the brim while the lace panels gently adorn the body.
