I’m a bit late in introducing this pattern, because honestly it came out mid-November, within a week of three other designs, and I didn’t have another blog post in me that week, but it’s no knock against the pattern, because I love this one too.
When I dropped Ferrous off at the quince Offices, I said I was feeling a hat for my next design. I’m a sucker for textured stitches, so I thought it would be fun to do a sampler hat of knit/purl textures.
I swatched a bunch of patterns in both Lark and Osprey and settled on using Osprey as the bouncy nature of the yarn really makes the texture pop. Also, Osprey is totally my new favorite Quince yarn.
Dolan is knit in the round and uses one skein of Osprey (shown in Leek here). Because of the large gauge (size 9/5.5 mm needles), it’s a super quick project – if you have any last minute Christmas gift needs. The pattern can be purchased for $5 USD via Quince & Co or queued up on Ravelry.
(PS – aren’t these photos by Carrie Bostick Hoge the dreamiest? I love them!)
