Persian Windows Hat - part of the +1 Pop Collection, a series of knitting patterns that play with mini skeins from Imagined Landscapes Designs

The first pattern of the +1 Pop Collection, the Persian Windows hat is a simple, stylish hat with a fantastic pop of colour brought about by a rapid increase. Knit in fingering weight yarn, it’s a great hat for those breezy evenings.

As I worked on the collection, flipping through stitch pattern books and looking for interesting ways to maximize the effects of a mini skein of yarn, I found this really fun pattern in Barbara Walker’s Third Treasury. I played with it a bit to space things out, and just loved how it has a sizzling raised line of garter stitch that’s dotted at intervals with pointed archways. And since the stitch pattern is based in garter stitch, this hat coordinates well with a lot of other accessories, including few of the patterns in this collection. Is that a hint? Yes, yes, it is.
