Fire. It serves so many essential functions of our life. At the core, it keeps us warm, nourished, and feeling all the cosy feels. Fire Shadows is about these moments.
Designed to be gender neutral, Fire Shadows will be the perfect campfire staple for anyone.
The hat is worked from the brim to the crown beginning with a tubular cast-on for a professional touch. Inspired by the casual and laid-back feel of camping the design combines 1x1 ribbing, colorwork that keeps you busy all the way to the crown, and an optional pompom.
Sample shown is knit in colourways Marble (MC) and Sycamore (CC). Paloma wears a size 2 with 2 cm / 0.75" of negative ease.
3.5 mm / US 4 circular needle with a cable length of at least 40 cm / 16” (or needle size to obtain gauge) for brim
4.0 mm / US 6 circular needle with a cable length of at least 40 cm / 16” (or needle size to obtain gauge) for body and crown
4.0 mm / US 6 set of double-pointed needles for crown shaping
22 sts x 32 rounds = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (in the round, in 1x1 ribbing, on smaller needle, after blocking)
21 sts x 22.5 rounds = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (in the round, in stockinette stitch and colourwork chart, on larger needle, after blocking)
Garthenor Beacons is a lovely soft yarn, very easy to knit. It perfectly shows off the cable stitches in my sweater! I love the color Kettle for it's deep dark green, but wouldn't mind experimenting with all the colors in Beacon range!
