Free pattern Friday: Wurm February 1, 2013 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas


(Photos: Grey Hat – Assemblage; Mustard + Grey Hat – 52 stitches)

Samantha, one of our in-store consultants, knit the Wurm hat by Katharina Nupp this week and we fell in love with the wonderfully snug and comfortable fit (band is double-thickness) and the modern edge of the slightly slouchy welted design. As the designer notes, “this is a very handsome, very useful hat with a lot of special features: you can use it with whatever kind of hair; it’s unisex – looks awesome on both women and men, and keeps your ears extra warm!” 

Samantha knit hers with two shades of Silk Blend (70% extrafine merino wool & 30% silk) from Manos del Uruguay and it was perfection!

Note: this pattern is available in English, French, Finnish and Italian.
