The Seathwaite Hat, published last October through our friend Karen at Fringe Association has been a huge hit! I have absolutely loved seeing all of the fabulous versions pop up on Instagram and Ravelry, and especially enjoy hearing when people say it was their first time working cables, charts, or a provisionally cast-on folded brim. I thought it would be fun to put together a few images of knitter’s hats that show the lovely diversity of color and yarn.
As expected, there are a lot of wonderful hats knit using the recommended yarn, The Fibre Co. Cumbria.

I also really loved seeing knitters substitute yarns for their hats. It is amazing what a difference is made with the final result!
