Last night while relaxing with a cup of Sleepytime tea and some Instagram therapy, I happened upon the perfect Christmas-y knit to add to my holiday knitting basket—which I definitely do not have time for, but will absolutely cast on anyways!
Designer Randi Hjelm Debes of Faroe Knit, designed this simple and adorable stocking cap using Navia Duo in classic red and white. The pattern is designed for 1-2 year (baby/toddler), 4-5 year (child small), 7-8 year (child medium), and 10-12 year (child large), and adult small. The pattern is available as a PDF download from Faroe Knit in English and Danish. Click here to purchase a PDF of the pattern.
Of course, I soon realized that the hat pattern was based on a sweater pattern for babies and kids, and the wheels really started turning. Imagine all the kids in matching sweaters and hats for a holiday photo! There just aren’t enough hours in the day.
I haven’t yet knit much with Navia Duo, but Meghan has finished a colorwork hat for some of her holiday knitting and the yarn feels incredible. It’s surprisingly soft when washed, but sturdy enough to feel like real Yarn-with-a-capital-Y.
Of course red and white are a classic combo, but there are nearly 30 colors of Duo — enough to please even the most discerning child.
