I wanted to knit a simple warm hat to wear in the winter. I thought that cables would make it a bit more interesting, but then I came across stitch patterns with twisted stitches and I was sold. No need for complicated cables when you can just twist two stitches at a time and get stitch patterns that look as good (or even better :)) than cables.
I chose the yarn because of its color (Jewel 698). I just love that color :) The yarn is very soft and lovely Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK (66% Merino Superwash Wool, 34% Tussah Silk; 147yds / 135m, 1.76oz / 50g). It took 2 balls to knit the hat.
To keep the ears really warm I worked a double ribbing to this hat.
Twisted Fall hat fits head circumference 21–22” / 54–56cm.
Finished measurements of the hat: circumference, unstretched 16” / 41cm and length 10” / 25cm.
