a squeeze of slouchy,IMG_3166cropup

with a little

extra dash

of ribbing

(i find that to knit

ribbing in the round

calms & soothes

me to no end).

add in a pinch of spice

(that would be the cables that make up the crown),

and be sure to use a yarn with skads of personality

(i used a bit less than one full skein of ‘farm blend’

from romney ridge farm yarn co. for size l/xl).

mix it all together

and you wind up with ‘zari’, the hat i’ve been dreaming of.

IMG_3209crop4no matter

my mood, it fits.

a little edgy?

this works with

black jeans

and motoboots.

a granola-head

boho spirit

kind of day?

this still fits the bill.

for the way

too common

‘bad hair day’?

absolutely this is the hat i’ve grabbed.

i’ve worn it day after day this cold, frosty winter

and as of today, it’s available here on

maybe i’ll knit another…

‘calm’ taken from 15:18 in proverbs.
