Independent Designer Feature: Winter Trails Hat

Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting and Coastal Knits {for more info on Alana’s design process, you can check out our interview with her and Hannah Fettig here} recently published a gorgeous design, the Winter Trails Hat, knit out of Organik in Arctic Tundra.


The hat begins with a2 x 2 rib and then flows into a traveling cable with integrated decreases at the top of the hat. Knit out of a worsted weight yarn, not only does the pattern work up quickly, but the blend of fibers in the Organik creates a warm and soft hat with gorgeous stitch definition.
