Beeswax Hat.

Many moons ago, I saw this hat on The Fat Squirrel podcast. I loved it then and have thought about knitting it many times. I purchased this skein of yarn to try out the color, really thinking it wouldn’t work on me even though I like it.

Looking at the pattern and the yarn, they really seemed to be right for each other, so after I finished my sweater, I thought I’d cast it on. This yarn is Quince and Co. Chickadee in Honey – one of their iconic colorways. I thought, given my recent gold/green/mustard obsession, that I would like it but I didn’t expect to love it like I do.

The pattern is Beeswax Hat by Amy van de Laar. I am obsessed with these cables and this pattern. The way the ribbing works up into the main pattern? Genious. Those decreases? Perfection! The pattern is written for DK and Chickadee is a sport weight, but I didn’t really change anything and it worked up fine. I had 5g of yarn left from one skein.

Yeah, I love this hat.


Happy making!
