Turn a Square

A generous friend brought a big bag of stash to our knit-and-natter afternoon, inviting us all to dive for treasure. Lots of oddments, many mysteries, all looking for a good home.

Conscious of my own stash-down challenge, I fought temptation and managed to restrain my haul to two labelled balls of Rowan 4 ply, one in black and one in grey.

I had a project in mind – Jared Flood’s Turn A Square hat – a free pattern for a close-fitting, striped beanie hat. When I got home I realised that the the pattern called for 4.5 mm needles, so the 4 ply wasn’t ideal, but …

Soft and light, it turned out ok – phew! A good use of the stash?

A useful pattern, and a good shape, I’ll definitely use it again and if you’re looking for a hat pattern, you might like to give this one a go!
