In which Fulton is released!
I am just so thrilled to be able to release this, my first, real pattern!
From the pattern, Fulton was designed to recreate a comfy store-bought hat that had been lounging around for many years, and to incorporate a bit more detail than the stockinette original. Fulton has just the right amount of slouch - enough to be trendy, but not so much as to slide off one’s head. The i-cord cast on gives the brim a clean edge, and flows seamlessly into the cable detail. Included are two different cable charts: a moss stitch diamond for the more traditionally minded, and a ribbed diamond for a subtler look.
Worked in less than one skein of either Pear Tree Supersoft 8-ply merino, or Madelinetosh Tosh DK (approximately 135 meters), this is the perfect hat for the... transitional weather of autumn. Perfect for a guy who wants a slightly different look, while not standing out too much, or for any person who wants a swanky new hat, for that matter!
For now, you can pick this pattern up on Ravelry (no registration needed) , but as soon as I can get printing sorted out, it will be available for purchase in hard copy as well (at Urban Yarns in Vancouver).
I'll let the photos speak for themselves, but drop me a line if you have any questions about the pattern!
