One of my most recent FOs was a hat from issue 121 of Knit Today called “Star Player”. It is the perfect slouchy hat, shown knit with the nicest single ply merino. I was looking for a good way to use some of the yarn I had left from my improvised sweater knit, and this just seemed perfect. However, my eyes deceived me and I needed to employ some insurance yarn, yarn of a similar size and weight that can come in in the clutch and save a WIP before it’s doomed to wander WIP Purgatory forever–and it also adds a little multi-color spice to the work!
Lucky for me, the yarn I chose went so well with the sweater yarn, that I found a new favorite color combination! I have a whole post dedicated to this hat coming soon. Here’s a preview of the hat:
In the meantime, here is a tutorial on the “star stitch”. Enjoy
