Another Hypnotic Yarn pattern released this week! Welcome Peaks and Valleys hat to the collection!
The pattern has lace repeats to create a perfect peak and valley design. Let's look at the deets:
Yarn: 60 grams/140 yards of DK weight yarn and silk mohair. Two strands of fingering weight held together can be substituted for the DK. I used Hypnotic Yarn's Technicolor (May's Mystery Yarn Club-right) and Hypnotic Yarn Grape Juice (left). Both are fingering weight that I held together. I love how to the unlikely pair blended so well!
Needles: US 7/ 4.5 mm with 16"/40cm order for knitting in the round, OR longer cord for Magic Loop OR a set of 5 double pointed needles. OR size to obtain gauge. OR...lol...just kidding
Notions: 4 stitch markers: 1 for beginning of round and 3 to mark each lace repeat (optional, but very helpful!)
Time: It's quick! I started September 18th and finished on the 22nd and probably knitted on it 2 hours-ish each day.
