Since there are many patterns named Molly, I want to point out that this is the one by Erin Ruth. It is just the perfect thing for fall. I knit mine out of Shelter, which is a slightly crunchy woolen-spun 2-ply yarn. This means the hat is extremely lightweight for its size (which is good, since it’s big) and feels sturdy and durable. I knit the ribbing on the brim on US 3 needles (ouch!) but moved up to a 6 for the rest.
Most of the hat is in a waffle-y stitch, which provides a wonderful texture. The star, of course, is the giant cable running up one side. The cable cleverly grows smaller as the crown decreases.This hat would be equally lovely knit in a super soft and drapey yarn, but I’m also happy with this earthier version.
