New Pattern: Thoracic Beanie
I’ve been super busy these last few weeks finishing up patterns that I’ve had sitting around half finished for way too long.
I’ve been asked why I named this one Thoracic. Well, there’s always a search to find a name that’s not overused, or used at all, in the world of knitted patterns. So here’s a ribbed hat… ribs… ribs are called the thoracic cavity… I’m addicted to Grey’s Anatomy and my favorite character is a thoracic surgeon… it sounds manly, and it hadn’t been used. Wah-la!
It’s knit up in fine sock yarn – shown here in Berroco Ultra Alpaca in steel cut oats, with a gauge of 32 stitches and 34 rows in 4 inches in rib, slightly stretched. Hat size can be easily adjusted by gauge, and adjusting number of repeats and rows worked. I also made one for me in Malabrigo Sock in Solis.
