A Manning Park Hat for Him


Laura Dear has a lovely pattern that I’ve spoken about before: The Manning Park Hat 

It’s warm (with a double, turned brim), classy and fun! The color work is easy and the crown decreases make a lot of sense to me. I like the slouchy style and the picot hem and the only modification I made is to work the inner brim out of SW merino in a 3rd color. I did this same thing for my own Manning Park Hat–in fact, I used another color from my Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label DK sample pack so I could also use my gauge! Clever, if I do say so myself 🙂 You can see the inner brim in the photo below. I think Spencer likes it!

Specs: I used size 5 and size 7 needles; the outer yarn is some Woolhalla Tunis from Tempe Yarn and Fiber (natural white) and some delightful Mountain Meadow Wool that I won in a giveaway from Rachel Smith of Wool n Spinning 🙂

    I do love this hat! Your description of it on your recent podcast has lodged it in my knitting brain. I’m pretty sure there will be one of these in my future. 😉 Awesome yarn choices for this version!

  5. Another beautiful Manning Park – I remember this pattern! The combination of the picot edge and the gradating colour work make this hat such a beauty, and I love the very cool inner brim! Just one question, for if I ever hazard a Manning Park of my own: would you recommending catching the floats on the first and last rows of colour work? Splendid hat!
