Who knew you could make such gorgeous things with yak yarn?
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention something critical to the design process for my most recent pattern, the Delta Hat. The big difference between the Delta and other patterns I’ve released so far is that this one involves notions – buttons, to be precise. I wouldn’t be me, though, without finding some new and special way to put something unique into the design. In the Delta Hat’s case, it’s the button flap, designed with buttons from Balwen Woodworks.
The Delta Hat is an asymmetrical hat with a garter stitch flap that can be left down for added coverage or buttoned up for a cute, cloche look. The side of the hat opposite the flap features a triangle motif reminiscent of art deco architecture, and the off-center decreases help this hat lie naturally at a jaunty angle.
