Free Pattern: Tapestry Hat

Rowan Tapestry is a wonderful blend of 70% wool and 30% soybean fiber. It's soft, fuzzy, and with beautiful color variations. When we first got this yarn in last winter, I took a skein home to play with. I came up with this hat. Enjoy!

Tapestry Hat

1 skein of Rowan Tapestry (although some people said they needed a tiny bit of a second skein)
US 6 16 inch circular
US 6 DP needles

CO 99 sts, place marker and join in round. Work in K1, P2 rib for 1 inch.
Knit next round and increase 31 sts evenly (about every 3 st or so) across round. (130 sts)

Work in Mock Cable as follows:
Rnd 1: *P2, sl 1, K 2, pass slipped stitch over both knitted stitches, repeat to end.
Rnd 2: *P2, K 1, yarn over, K1, repeat to end.
Rnd 3 and 4: *P2, K3, repeat to end.

Repeat Mock Cable 10 times. Then, work Rnd 1 and 2 of Mock Cable.

Begin decreases as follows, changing to DP when necessary:
Rnd 1: K8, K 2 tog tbl, rep to end.
Rnd 2: K7, K 2 tog tbl, rep to end.

Cut a long tail, and with tapestry needle, thread the remaining stitches and pull it tight. Weave in loose ends to finish.
