A little different twist on a classic! Gratitude is a gorgeous rib hat with a more rounded crown shaping.
It is knit from the bottom up, in the round and seamlessly. The crown shaping is done using the Magic Loop.
I used two beautiful yarns held together for my sample for an exquisite gem! But Gratitude can definitely be knit using just one strand of Sport or light DK yarn.
Approximately 125-150 (150-175, 175-200) metres/136-164 (164-190, 190-218) yards each in fingering yarn and mohair (held together) or total in Sport or light DK weight yarn.
