Star Hat in DK 4ply Sock yarn, you could also use our other DK yarns as long as you get the gauge. You might have to play around with needle size or switch to metal instead of bamboo.

Naturally you could make is smaller with smaller size needles.

Make sure to use the 24" circular for the Star Design or your hat will be too small.

 

Have fun!

Memory & Though are Odin's 2 Ravens. They are also known as Hugin & Mugin.

I've placed the Sun Wheel between each of the 4 sets of Ravens. Plus the Norwegian

Fana Stars below. A true Scandinavian Sweater.

Entire sweater is worked in the DK Sock yarn, so it should be a long lasting sweater for years to come.

You could do sections of this sweater or replace the motifs with something different, as long as your numbers add up.

 

Have Fun!

Dancing Paca Hat is finally in a format I can e-mail as a pdf. I wrote this pattern about 10 years or more ago. A friend of ours, Teressa, who owns Paca Gardens gave me a photo of her beautiful alpacas and I worked up this design. I've chosen the 2 ply - Super Fine Alpaca yarn for the design as the texture of this yarn brings the alpacas more to life. Dancing freely in the field. We can only dream of Spring to come! We will all be dancing!
