New Hat Pattern: Svea Gets Updated!

I’ve been working on an update to my Svea hat pattern I released a few years ago, and can finally cross it off my to do list!

It’s a simple colorwork hat inspired by snowy tree limbs against a winter sky. I love how the faux fur pompom at the top gives a fun snowball effect to this cozy hat! I can’t tell you how happy I am with the clean, crisp white against the sky blue. It fits my mood and personality so well.

So what’s new compared to my original release of this pattern?

  • Only two colors in the pattern compared to three in the original. This makes the colorwork a bit easier, and I think it actually looks more striking with just the two colors instead of more.
  • Better fitting! The original ran a little large, which was even a bit big on me. (Have I told you I have a large head??) After wearing it over time it loosened up a bit more, so I’ve adjusted the number of cast on stitches and made it a little less slouchy.
  • Clearer instructions ❤ Who doesn’t love an easier description of how to make a pretty hat?  

I hope you enjoy knitting this hat as much as I do. It’s a great project for those looking to try colorwork for the first time, or those who want a colorwork pattern that’s easy to memorize.

Happy Knitting!
