Weekends at the Cabin Hat Knitting Pattern: Design Inspiration
Fun, simplistic, gender-neutral, and easy to wear. The Weekends at the Cabin Hat is a 2-in-1 hat pattern including the option to work a mountain motif or a tree motif, and four size options. It is worked in DK weight, creating a quick and cozy knit. This is one of five patterns in the “My Forever Home” Collection, a collection of DK weight knitting patterns inspired by my home state: Montana.
If you’ve ever taken a winter vacation to a cabin, this might sound a bit familiar:
Relaxing on the sofa, watching the snow quietly blanket the evergreen landscape, listening to the crackle of the wood fire burning after a fun, but cold, day in the mountains. To me, this is the epitome of a winter weekend spent at the cabin.
The Weekends at the Cabin Hat pattern was inspired by the remote woods of Montana -- where you might go to spend a weekend away at a cabin. The design shows a simple picture of what you see out of your cabin window: mountains and trees. The two motifs don’t fit on the same hat, so the pattern is a 2-in-1, with the option to work either the trees or the mountains.
I designed the hat using Western Sky Knits' Merino 17 DK yarn in the Mother Lode colorway: a beautiful gray with speckles of gold, brown, and darker gray, to represent the colors of cabin life, complete with wood, rocks, and dirt. The Weekends at the Cabin Hat looks great in most solid, tonal, and slightly variegated yarns. Looking for some yarn and color suggestions for your hat? Check out this blog post.
