In this class, you will start a Hozkwoz Hat, a pattern from Marlisle: A New Direction in Knitting to the extent that you can continue in confidence. It is an excellent introduction to understanding the technique of Marlisle. The hat is worked in quarters from the top down, in the round, starting with a pinhole cast-on; a circular cast-on method essential to add to your cast on arsenal if you don’t already have one. It’s useful for toe up socks, shawls that start in the centre and Pinglewins too. This hat is an easy knit, with enough quirks to keep it interesting and pick up plenty of transferable skills.
Suitable for stranded colourwork knitters of all levels who wish to expand their knowledge of steeks or those who wish to try steeking for the first time.
Minimum skill level: Intermediate/advanced beginner
Existing knowledge required: Must have experience of colourwork and be confident knitting in the round.
- understanding the construction of the Hoskwoz Hat
- pinhole cast-on
- working a hat from the top down
- basic Marlisle using two colours of yarn (with one as a feature colour)
- understanding the function and application of decorative seams
- garter stitch in the round
- a new increase that works wonders when using two yarns together
Students to bring:
- a copy of Marlisle: A New Direction in Knitting
- 100g/3½oz DK/light worsted AND 100g/3½oz aran/worsted weight. For further details, see the Hozkwoz Hat pattern entry on Ravelry or read the details in the book. Go for 100% wool, ideally not super wash treated – you want something a little ‘sticky’ for more forgiving colourwork. You want 2 contrasting, but harmonious colours.
- 4.5mm (US7) AND 5.5mm (US9) needles. There is something particularly satisfying about working the quarters of this hat on DPNs, but it is also possible on a circular needle long enough for magic-loop. If you plan to magic-loop, you may find 4 stitch markers useful.
- 4.5mm (US7) crochet hook for easier working of pinhole cast-on.
