93) Pattern launch: Cold snap!

Finally!  How long does it take to write the world’s simplest hat pattern, anyway?  You can download the pattern for Cold Snap for free, here.

Alex, a very dear friend, and I had a lot of fun taking the photos for this hat last Wednesday.  In fact, it can be a hat – or a hood.  It all depends on how many seams you sew.

One seam, hood:

Two seams, hat:

I had hoped – really hoped – to be able to list some yarn at the same time as I posted this pattern.  Unfortunately, I miscalculated badly.  Our kitchen is being refitted next week, so I have no way to set any dye, no space to dry yarn in, and – significantly – no time.  I do have two skeins available – I’ll try to get them listed very soon.


  • The hat/hood is good (good luck with the kitchen refit – I am not sure which is worse a kitchen or bathroom being out of action)

  • The hat is really cute, but the hood is especially wonderful! I’d be tempted to use a braid of yarn to ‘lace’ the second seam – that way the hat could be easily returned to hood status, when the mood for a hood strikes.
