Elemental Hat - Opal

I'm back with another sideways hat from Woolly Wormhead's Elemental collection - this one is called Opal and it represents the element of Air:

I used the Buoy DK yarn from Hipstrings for this one (just like I used for the first hat I knit, Toph) - though this time I went up a needle size, which make it a bit less stiff. It didn't seem to impact the gauge, which is good. I knit this on a 3.0mm needle, while the other one was on 2.75mm.

Here is how the hat looks after a single pattern repeat. It takes 7 repeats to complete the hat:

The wind motif is minimal and subtle - just 3 wavy lines. I love the way this "goldenrod" color looks against the blue.The color is best on the picture above.

Another hat done! That's four out of five in the booklet. I figure I may as well finish the set, so I've already cast on for the last one, which represents the element of Water. Stay tuned!


  1. I'm really enjoying your journey through the Elemental booklet and looking forward to seeing Water!
