New Pattern Release: Peaks and Valleys Hat

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. 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.
