Oslo Hat

I love this hat pattern (although I feel a little silly modeling it in the middle of the summer!)

Pattern: Oslo Hat

Size: Women

Yarn: Polka Dot Sheep Iron Horse (75% merino / 25% mulberry silk) – 1 skein (438 yds) in color Fathom

I love this yarn – good structure and bounce, but still soft and silky. The color is deeply saturated, with just a little bit of shine. Because it’s fingering weight, I knit double-stranded. I ran out of yarn before I even began the top shaping, so I finished it up much more quickly than the pattern called for, completing all of the decreases in just a few rounds. I love how it turned out, but I’d also like to finish off the pattern as written (next time I find two skeins of fingering weight yarn that I can’t resist!)

Needles: US 3s (16″ circulars and DPNs)
