Year of Hats: May Hat

It’s the third Tuesday of the month, which means it’s time for the May Hat in our Year of Hats series! When spring shifts into summer, our knitting projects tend to get a little smaller, both for portability as we spend more time outside at the park or beach, and also for comfort, as sweaters may sometimes be a little too warm to knit. Although the weather here in Philadelphia has been unpredictable in May, warm weather is most definitely on the horizon, and hats are the perfect portable project to prepare for fall!

The May Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. The deep ribbed folded brim, intricate cables, and pom pom make the most of a full skein of Germantown, ensuring a warm and cosy hat come winter.

Just like previous months, limited kits are available for the May Hat, which include: • 1 skein of Germantown in Peacock • 2 Perennial butterflies in Neon Lime and • 1 custom leather label

If you want to join in on the fun, check out our participating stockists here and give them a call to reserve your kit!

Happy Knitting!
