Byzantium - hat in twined knitting

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!

  1. Wow that is beautiful!!
    When I do colourwork knitting I use two hands to work the yarns and the wrong side looks woven like in your hat :-)

  2. What a lovely hat Lars!!!! I love all the colours that you used.

  3. Beautiful. Thank you for showing the inside of the hat, too. Sometimes the wrong side is more interesting than the right side.
