the fringe hat-along

Back in February, Karen of Fringe launched the Fringe Hatalong series, and I really enjoyed following everyone’s progress with the first pattern she picked, the Audrey hat from Tolt. I didn’t join in on that round, knowing that there would be more coming in the series, but I’m excited to say that I’m very much looking forward to hat number two.

The pattern won’t be revealed until Thursday the 16th, but there’s some preliminary information posted over on Fringe, particularly regarding yarn selection. Hat number two is a pattern with an all-over textured stitch pattern, and it calls for a heavy worsted/aran weight yarn. I’ve been doing some stash diving, trying to see if I have anything appropriate, but I’ve also been down in Portland for the weekend and I couldn’t resist popping into a new-to-me yarn store, Twisted, so… in the end, I picked up a beautiful skein of Quince & Co. Osprey in Glacier, pictured above. So much for knitting from the stash. Oops! Perhaps I’ll have to knit more than one hat so I can actually knit through some stash yarn as well.

I can’t wait for the pattern reveal on Thursday, and to see how this Osprey knits up! Will you be joining in on this round of the hatalong?
