Off the Set hat

Off the Set

Lindsay Lewchuk2023 New Releases, Head, Patterns

After falling in love with a stitch pattern used in an indie collection, the stitching addiction On the Set prompted an Off the Set spin off design.  Exploring its possibilities led to some glamorous 1920s daydream knitting adventures in the form of a cute cloche.  The journey begins with a highly textured I-cord cast on.  Stitches are picked up for the body of the hat.  Cables and lace merge to take this adventure Off the Set into daily living style.

The tech edited and test knit intermediate level hat is fully written and charted.
