The, “There’s No Place Like Home” design is such a pretty hat pattern, and when I saw it on the CozyUp Knits podcast, I knew that I wanted to make it. It’s an easy-to-follow pattern, and the cable carries into the ribbed brim. I used two strands of fingering weight yarn from Neighborhood Fibre Co that I held double. Doing this works perfectly for this pattern, and the finished item fits me well.
I was able to finish this hat in about a day of knitting. The pattern was quickly memorizable, though the yarn I used was slick and did not allow for cabling without a cable needle. Holding the yarn double made it work up reasonably fast, much faster than a regular fingering weight hat.
This hat was another pattern that I completed for the Cozy Fall Toque Along 2021. You can find more information about the KAL on the Ravelry thread found here. If you are more of an Instagram user, you should be able to look at the hashtag here.
I enjoyed following along with this pattern, and I feel like it looks like it’s much more complicated than it was. That gives a lot of bang for your buck, especially with gift knitting. The cables look pretty impressive, and the design flows through the entire hat.
I let my daughter model my hat for pictures. She really likes it, even though it’s slouchy on her. I think it looks cute on her and I love the pompom that I chose. There are a pair of matching mittens that come with the pattern as a set, but I haven’t made them yet.
