Is there anything better than a warm fluffy hat? Whether you’re playing outside in the snow, or simply running errands in a chilly car, this lightweight hat will keep you cozy all winter long. With alpaca and mohair/silk held together—and a pretty cabled hem—The Nettlecreek Hat is relaxing to knit and stylish to wear. Say Hello to your new favourite hat!
THE KNITTY GRITTY
Extra Small (Small-Medium, Medium-Large): 18 (19, 20)” / 46 (48, 50) cm circumference x 8.25 (8.5, 8.75)” / 21 (21.5, 22) cm length.
The Nettlecreek Hat is designed with approx. 3” (3.5 cm) of negative ease. I am pictured wearing size Small-Medium; head circumference 22” (56 cm).
‣ 1 strand each of Yarn A and Yarn B are held together throughout.
Yarn A: Isager Alpaca 2 (50% Alpaca, 50% Merino Wool; 273 yards / 250 meters / 50 grams); 1 skein in desired colour.
Yarn B: Isager Silk Mohair (70% Kid Mohair, 30% Silk; 232 yards / 212 meters / 25 grams): 1 ball in desired colour.
If substituting, be sure to choose yarns that match the original yarns in both weight and yardage (and fibre type, if possible). The yardage required for each increase in size is minimal; to allow for minor variations in personal gauge, I recommend allowing one full skein/ball of each yarn, no matter which size you knit. Size Medium-Large requires the full ball of mohair/silk, so be sure to knit exactly to gauge or allow an extra ball of mohair/silk to avoid playing yarn chicken!
NEEDLES (adjust if necessary to obtain correct gauge)

Five double-pointed needles (DPNs) size US 4 (3.5 mm).
25 stitches and 33 rounds = 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette Stitch.
