Bandwagon – The Knitting Doctor

I think I’m the last person on Ravelry to finish one of these hats. There are over 10,000 projects for the Musselburgh hat pattern, by Ysolda Teague.

That is just the best hat pattern on earth. Here are the details:

Project Details:

  • Pattern: Musselburgh, by Ysolda Teague
  • Yarn: Beaverslide 2-ply Sport/Sock weight, 80% merino, 20% kid mohair, color Mink Heather.
  • Needles: 3.25 mm Chiaogoo bamboo double points
  • Started: Sometime in the past year?
  • Finished: December 22, 2022
  • What I Learned: This is an interesting pattern construction, starting at the top of the head with a few stitches, casting on until it’s big enough around, then knitting straight for a really long time, then decrease. See below, the photo explains this better than I can. It leaves you with a double-layer hat that is very cozy.
  • Yarn/Pattern rating: *****/*****. Clearly written pattern, can be used for a wide range of yarn weights and hat sizes. This yarn is just divine. It is soft and lofty, but also durable. The kid mohair gives it a nice sheen.

Here’s a photo of the whole hat:

I do have a few more colors of this yarn in the stash. This hat is for me, but John tried it on, and he’s picked out his color.

Last but not least is Hank! He’s growing, learning, and in general being a whole lot of fun.
