Power Station Hat by Shannon Okey
A free project from Spin to Knit

This is a very, very simple hat with an elegant look, thanks to overtwisted singles that cause the stockinette stitches to angle in various directions. The singles were spun from samples of Hatchtown Farm’s Coopworth fiber in natural shades of grey and white; the decoration on the side is made from Houndscroft Farm silk-wrapped wool. I call this hat “Power Station” because it’s so full of “energized” singles. This pattern is extremely flexible; depending on the yarn’s weight, you can use any size needle from U.S. 6 to 101⁄2. I’ve knitted more hats like this than I can count, and have never altered the number of stitches I cast on!
