What’s good for your heart on a cold day? Knowing someone loves you enough to make you a hat! Deir Hart (dear heart) is heavyweight, fuzzy, soft and fast to knit.
Deir Hart is available in three sizes, and stretches to fit preschoolers to men’s XL. Knit in the round on size 11 (8mm) needles at 2.5 stitches per inch, it uses only 75–125 yards/69–115 meters of super bulky yarn or any combination of yarn weights knit together to get gauge.
For Women’s Medium/Men’s Small hat: Uses one strand each, knit together, of:
1 skein Alafoss Léttlopi, 100% Icelandic wool, 109 yards (100m)/1.75 oz (50g) per skein, color Violet Heather, #1414
2 skeins Estelle Yarns Alpaca 33, 100% Superfine Alpaca, 36 yards (33m)/3.5oz (100g) per skein, color #406 Note: Estelle Yarns Alpaca 33 is discontinued, but any alpaca super bulky yarn is a good substitute. Plymouth Yarns Baby Alpaca Grande might be a good fit.
