This hat is probably my favorite so far. It knits up quickly, the colors are amazing, and it’s in one of my favorite yarns.
Knit very traditionally from the bottom up, the real beauty of the Melody hat is the color changes and the clever slip stitch pattern. I bought the kit (containing Hazel Knits Artisan Sock) from designer Melissa of Stick Chick Knits at Stitches West, but you could do it in any assortment of sock yarns. If you buy the pattern separate from the kit, you also get Rhythm.
I knit this pattern without any modification. It was another one nighter and I’m seriously considering knitting another one. Project details can be found here.
