Doing something with “Herzblut” means working with a lot of passion, with all your energy and commitment.
I feel more than grateful whenever I have a new stitch combination on my needles and above all, it`s January and the Herzblut hat can actually be worn outside ! This year we do have some snow in the woods and it feels like winter. The HERZBLUT hat is showing little hearts and cables all around and a wonderful crown solution, or what do you think the pattern looks like?

The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slightly slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It’s important to note that there is a 4-stitch-decrease to be knit. The pattern doesn’t call for a cable needle and is surprisingly simple when it comes to the crown. You can do it, knitters!

The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
