The fir trees of the Snowy Woods Hat are created with traveling twisted stitches on a reverse stockinette background. It is a quick knit in worsted weight yarn.
or in the Snowy Hat Collection kit from Knitted Wit (limited time offer).
The Snowy Hat Collection is a true Portland collaboration. Local hand-dyer Knitted Wit created 6 new snowy-inspired yarn colors, 6 Portland designers created unique and wearable hat patterns inspired by these new colors, and local ceramics company jamPDX created mugs to coordinate with the collection.

Instructions for the trees are provided in both chart and written form. The hat can be adjusted for size by increasing or decreasing the stockinette background stitches; instructions are in the pattern.
For my Snowy Hat project, I designed this hat as a companion piece to my Snowy Woods Cowl, which features fir trees and additional intertwining cabled trees. Lorajean (Knitted Wit) and I collaborated last year on an Aran weight Snowy Woods Cowl kit, and the yarn was so pretty she was inspired to create this very Portland Snowy Hat Collection.
