For the Glashütte Hat, Kate created an all over cabled pattern that worked its way around the body of the hat.  The traveling motif creates an organic pattern, and the name glashütte, {"glassworks" in German} is a nod to the stained-glass effect that is created by the motifs.

The top of the hat features integrated decreases within the cable pattern and is finished off with a pom pon. The combination of the cables and the warm and soft Road to China Light makes this hat a perfect wintertime accessory.

For the Trellis Hat, Courtney knit a classic and sophisticated hat perfect for every day wear. Because hats offer more flexibility in color possibilities than, say, a sweater, she combined two of her favorite colors of Canopy Fingering - the bright mint green of Fern with the unique bronzey-yellowy-brown of Coqui.

Letting the yarn and colors speak for them selves, she focused on the shape and decreases on the tam, creating a finished hat with unique decreases that resemble a spiderweb.
