We are happy to own a copy of "Knitted stockings from Turkish villages" by Prof. Kenan Özbel. It is a fantastic book - full of wonderful patterns. I have used one of the patterns to design a hat in twined knitting.
I had to adapt it so that I would be able to make decreases without having to charter every row. Keep knitting simple when possible!
I am usually not a "colourful" knitter - but I have some yarns from Wålstedt´s that just beg to be used for projects like this. Highest quality wool, z-plied and wonderful colours.
It feels as if the colours will add to the warmth of this hat. I started with traditional twined knitting patterns from Dalecarlia to get a stable and warm beginning.
One of the many benefits of twined knitting - a neat inside, no floats!
