A/W 2019 Closeups: The Brooklyn Hat

Now that we've had a minute to breathe post-launch, we wanted to take a closer look at the patterns from our Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, and let you hear a little more from the designers behind them about their inspiration, key techniques, and some color ideas (since we love our naturals, but, there's a whole dyed range out there, too!). For our first go, I (Sloane) interviewed Meghan about her Brooklyn hat, one of my favorite accessories.

What was your inspiration for this hat?

I’ve lived in the Hudson Valley/NY for the majority of my life (and I’m so happy to be back now!). One of my favorite NY-specific fall activities is walking across the Brooklyn Bridge on a Sunday. The architecture of the bridge inspired me. The hat's cable arches and columns of twisted stitches mimic the grand arches and suspension cables of the bridge.

Both of us love patterns that explore new techniques. What are your favorites in this one? Any tips for knitters?

The folded brim, which is a feature I don’t use often in my designs, but it seemed perfect for this hat! My favorite way to work a folded brim is working a crochet provisional cast on over my ribbing needle, so it’s super easy to “unzip” when working the cast on edge together with the top ribbing stitches.

I love the unusual ribbing on this hat—how'd you choose it?

Thanks! The ribbing naturally developed from the cable motif. The cable motif is a heavy modification from one of my favorite stitch dictionaries, which included the interesting twisted stitch ribbing.

We love it in Ash, but what other colors would you make one in?

It’s so hard to choose! There are so many gorgeous colors in Forge, but I’d love to see it in Midnight, Charcoal, and Juniper.

Any modification tips?

If you’re looking for a more fitted, watch-cap-like fit, simply fewer rounds of the ribbing above the cable chart to the desired length. If you’re looking for a super winter-y Brooklyn, use the remaining yarn to make a pom pom!

Brooklyn is available electronically on Ravelry, as well as in print. Pair yours with a skein of Forge in your favorite color and a leather label for a great winter gift for a knitworthy loved one...or yourself!

    I can’t believe that with just a contact to Dr. Todd, I got my ex husband back. I had read some stuff about Manifest Temple before I contacted him but I didn’t know that all those stuff were so accurate until I got my husband back, After getting my ex husband back I taught it wise to share my testimony with everyone on this website that how Dr. Todd was able to get my husband back with his powerful reunion love spell. That rebuild my broken marriage. All my hope has been fully restored and am happy to share my experience to everyone. Do feel free to Contact Dr. Todd via email if having any challenge with marriage or relationship at: (manifestspellcast@gmail.com) I so much believe he can also help out with his powers.

    Hello everyone, my name is Sandra Fangher. For quite some time, My husband was living in another apartment due to work pressure and we were very much happy together even though he stayed apart from us for some months. Little did i know a colleague from work was already having an affair with him which made my husband file a divorce. I knew something was wrong because we never had to fight or argue that much to make him leave. I was traumatized and i search for help to tackle the situation which led me to DR Mahlangu from praises people showered on him online. We discussed at length and he told me everything I needed to know about what happened and the due process to fix the problems. He fulfilled his promises and got my husband back to me and the divorce process was canceled. Now my husband is back home to us and we are happy together. Its indeed amazing how people can genuinely help other people when they are in need.Contact Dr Mahalngu for your help on whatsapp me on: +27787390989 Email: superiorspellhome@gmail.com

He told me all that was needed to be done to restore the love and connections between me and my man which he did. The result started manifesting after 48 hours as he promised.
