This is Mesi Hat, designed by Finland’s Suvi Simola. It is available as a free download on Ravelry and on Suvi’s website. Just scroll down Suvi’s pattern listing on the right side of her site until you reach her stunning wine and pink version of this hat.
Mine is knit in sport weight Blackberry Ridge yarn. I thought this pattern would be just the thing to tame the variegated beast, their Kaleidoscope in a discontinued bright colorway.
The body of the hat is a simple slip stitch pattern. As you reach the decrease portion at the top, you change to stranding. The hat ends up looking quite small. But I have a major pumpkin head and the very stretchy slip stitch opens up quite nicely and fits well. Thanks, Suvi!
