Be An Ice-Cold Stunner in This Hot Handspun Hat Pattern
In Aspen you MUST be beautiful, and nothing says “I happen to be the coolest person here” like this chunky handspun hat pattern. Only you can’t buy this hat at Prada. You can only make it.
I designed the Aspen Ice Hat to capture the Bohemian, cooler-than-cool Aspen look that is so IN this winter. And people have been stopping me everywhere I go to tell me they love it.
As a special challenge, I designed the hat for handspun yarn.
The Aspen Ice Hat is an Easy Pattern for Handspun Yarn
The repeating lace pattern makes a spiral that looks fantastic with a lot of different of textures, colors and thicknesses.
The best thing is that this is a fast and easy knit hat pattern, which means you can make it as a present for your friend (maybe with some of that yarn they brought you back from a trip that you had no idea what to do with).
Looking For the Hat Pattern from Magnolia Handspun That Matches the Aspen Ice Cowl? This Is It.
Last year I published the Aspen Ice cowl, the first of my exclusive patterns for Magnolia Handspun.
Camilla, the owner and spinner of Magnolia Handspun, knit a chunky, slouchy hat to go with the cowl and published this photo.
Since then, we’ve been getting so many requests for “the hat that goes with the Aspen Ice cowl” that I decided to re-create the hat and publish the hat pattern so you could have it.
