When in doubt, knit a hat! It’s a rule we live by at H+W, and Greenpoint, by co-founder Sloane Rosenthal, is a perfect just-involved-enough project for the busy holiday season. The slipped garter rib produces a squishy, delightfully soft texture in our worsted-weight Forge, while being simple enough to work while gathering with family and friends. The deep ribbed brim will keep you warm all year round, and a slightly slouchy fit works for everyone, whether you’re knitting gifts for others or a much-needed gift for yourself.
Kit Alert! We think hats make for great holiday gift-knits, and also great ready-to-knit gifts for knitters in your life. When you bundle Greenpoint with a skein of Forge, you'll get a discount off the pattern and a free H+W project bag.
