Anchor Steam hat

Anchor steam hat 1

I usually wouldn’t be knitting hats in August, but this was a quick test knit for Thea Coleman of Baby Cocktails, and a great way to use up some stash yarn . . .

Pattern:  Anchor Steam hat

Yarn:  Julie Asselin’s Nurtured (less than one skein each of the MC and CC  colors)

Needles:  US 5s (ribbing) and US 6s

Size:  smallest

I love how Thea uses short rows to make the ribbing wider in the front than in the back – this helps the hat “slouch” better and lets it sit more comfortably on your head.  And, I think it’s beautiful knit in these neutrals!
