FO: Eco Trinity

DSC_0870-10

Pattern: Trinity Stitch Hat

Yarn: left over Ecological Wool from when I made this awesome sweater.

Notes: This is my favourite knitted hat. I found the  stitch easy and enjoyable, and I love the result. The hat is comfy, warm and fits me perfectly. Plus, I'm obsessed with Eco Wool.

I finished this ages ago, but then there were so many other things to post about, it kind of got left in the dust. But I wear it often, and it's just so lovely. I think it has the perfect amount of slouch.

And in case you missed it, the green cowl I'm wearing is this one.

I love how seed stitch looks in bulky yarn. You've made a gorgeous hat! I just ordered two skeins of Eco Wool (in yellow) to make a Twenty Ten cardigan. It will be my first time working with Eco Wool, and I can't wait to try it out!

I am making the very same awesome sweater out of the same awesome yarn, and thinking that I too will have some left to make a similarly awesome hat!

Love it, it looks so good! I'm biased though, I made this hat about 3 years ago and have worn it every time I needed a hat since. Bad thing is that the trinity part of mine stretched SO much, I now look totally Rasta when I wear it.

Such a great hat! I can see why you love it. The stitch pattern is so cushy soft looking.

Michele said...

Very cute! I love the slouchy hat - and that is a great stitch pattern. It looks like you will get a lot of wear out of that.

I love Eco Wool too! Your hat looks awesome with the cowl--enjoy the winter accessories while you can :)

Eva said...

This is a really cool hat! Bugger the winter is almost over and I decided to stop the hat knitting. I put it on my list for next winter :)

I love hearing about garments after they've been worn a bit. Gives me a better idea of what works in the long run. Beautiful hat. And beautiful photos too. I love how he caught the light in your eyes.

I am always won over by a slouchy beret. This one is no exception!

So pretty! I've got to start knitting with more neutrals. I say that every time I comment on one of your beautiful FOs. You just do them so well!

I really like your new hat. I have to try out trinity stitch. Eco wool must be nice to work with. I'm also going to knit Aidez sometime but I didn't find a right yarn for this project.
You look so beautiful on the second pic. The light is amazing...

That stitch definition makes me swoon!

Hilary said...

Gorgeous! You're right...the amount of slouch is *just* right. And I love the color and the great stitch definition. What a perfect winter hat!

Cakewalk Yarns said...

beautiful hat! You are right, it is just enough slouch. I am not a fan of the overly exaggerated.

Louise said...

Very nice!
