Monarch Lyon Hat

March 4, 2010

This hat is a version of my original Lyon Hat pattern.  I picked up these great buttons some time ago and my search for the perfect chocolate-colored companion yarn ended with the amazing wool/silk Venezia Worsted.  The bold rib pattern showcases its sheen and depth of color perfectly, but any high definition yarn will make those knitted vertical lines really stand out.

Cascade Yarns Venezia Worsted
[70% Merino Wool, 30% Silk; 100g/218yd]
# 133 Chocolate Brown; 1 skein

• Six approx. 1-inch buttons
• Tapestry needle sized to fit through buttonholes
• Stitch markers

• Set of five US size 8 (5mm) double-point needles
• Set of five US size 10 (6mm) double-point needles

18 sts = 4 inches in (P8, K1) rib on smaller needles when slightly stretched

Adult Medium

20 inches (will stretch)


Model: Emma Roberts

Tips For This Project:
• Use two smaller double-point needles (size 6 recommended) when working I-cord for tighter and neater-looking finished results.
• Larger buttons can be used by attaching them to the earflaps through the buttonholes in the ribbing (though the earflaps will no longer be detachable).
