Today at my LYS, we started selling passports to the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl...it is a short month away and it's time to put it on my calendar and plan what stores to visit. Each LYS will have a grand door prize drawing, events around the crawl and free patterns for all passport holders.
A while back I offered to design a new hat pattern for Iron Horse for the yarn crawl. We chose Cascade 220 Superwash as it comes in a bunch of colors and is washable. I knit the hat while at the beach for a week and my friend, Peggy, came up with a great addition of a tassel on the top. So, I named it Bay Head Hat as that is where I knit it.
So, just to give you a small taste of what it looks like, here's a snippet of the textured stitches. I will share more as the yarn crawl gets closer.
Be sure to buy a passport so you can get your free pattern at Iron Horse. Not a local to the area? No worries as after the yarn crawl you will be able to buy it on Ravelry...I'll keep you posted.
