Free Pattern Release: Snowflakes on Mulberries Hat

A fancy name for a hat that’s quick, easy, and makes a great gift for anyone. The 6-fold symmetry of the decreases on top of this stretchy ribbed hat form a snowflake when worked in the ice-blue stripes of this shade of Silk Garden Lite (#2046). Photo set here, Ravelry project page here, Ravelry pattern page here. This project works up extremely fast, and I really enjoyed working with the Silk Garden Lite. It was nice to let it do its own thing after a couple of false starts with fancier designs. The snowflake thing wasn't even intentional. I just thought that 6 would be a nice number of paired decrease sets. :) The dk weight yarn makes the hat fit easily into a jacket pocket, and the stretchy ribbing means it fits almost everyone.
