Wintry Woods Hat
"When snow falls, nature listens." Antoinette van Kleef
This design is made to remind you of a quiet evening, when snow falls ever so softly on winter woods, the air is still and so incredibly clean, and you stand motionless just to prolong this feeling of peace.
The pattern of the hat, while repeating itself 3 times, still looks different from every angle, giving an impression that , just like in nature, no two trees are exactly alike. Colorwork here is simple enough to have a beginner knitter moving along with confidence. It is also captivating for the mind of an advanced knitter, who would be going for "just one more row" to see the picture appear in their hands.
The hat is knit bottom up, starting with a couple of inches of K1P1 ribbing in one color. The contrasting color is then added for colorwork. The color not in use is carried on the wrong side of work as floats. Colorwork continues throughout the decreases of the crown as well.
