The big winner for the new knit-along is the Koolhaas Hat
(the pattern also appears in Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts
, 2007, and Interweave Knits Accessories,
2009). I've knit this one and it really is a winner! I used Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran and it turned out beautifully.
Here's the schedule:
11-2 to 11-9: Find yarn and knit swatch
11-10 to 11-25: Knit hat (you might be able to knit more than one in this time frame!)
11-26: Block hat
11-27 until forever: Wear with prideYarn suggestions:
Any worsted-weight yarn will do. Ideas such as the Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran mentioned above, Berroco Comfort, KnitPicks Shine, Rowan CashSoft, Debbie Bliss Here's how a knit-along works:
1. Buy your pattern (or find it in the magazines noted above).
2. Buy your yarn (or find it in your stash).
3. Log on to the forum
and introduce yourself and tell us which yarn you're using. The forum is where all of the fun is; it's where you'll share your tips, ask questions, or upload photos, and it's where you'll find support if you're having problems.
4. Post a photo of your finished hat when you're done.
It's as easy as that. Now let's get started!
