Reminisce Hat Pattern by Libby Jonson - A Truly Myrtle Design
I’m excited to let you know that my Reminisce Hat pattern has been published!

Reminisce is a gorgeous slightly-slouchy hat that is super flattering to wear. I blocked my hat in the photos over a dinner plater to emphasise the gentle beret shaping and I love pulling it down over my ears and off to one side.

This hat was designed with good friends from England in my mind. I really miss those lovely people and am so grateful for the wonderful years we spent together. It feels good to knit those feelings into something beautiful.

Here’s how I describe my hat on the pattern:

“Picture a smouldering fire, good company,
lively conversation and laughter late into the night. Reminisce celebrates dear
friends and happy memories. Knitted in the round from the bottom up this
deliciously textured hat is one to treasure, just like great times with darling
people. Featuring an all over “block” pattern and gorgeous trailing cable panel,
Reminisce warms our hearts and our heads. The “shallow slouch” shape, a blend between
a slouchy hat and beret, is feminine & flattering. Reminisce is an entertaining
knit including written & charted instructions. Ideal for experienced
knitters and adventurous beginners.”

The cable panel, set against a deliciously textured background, really shows off beautiful yarn. It’s not a tricky cable pattern and although I used a cable needle to knit mine, you could manage the cables without one. As is usual with my patterns, I’ve included both written and charted instructions where possible. When I’m knitting, I mostly prefer charted instructions. Have you used a chart before? Do you know how to read them?  If you don’t, keep your eyes peeled here on the blog because I’ve got a lesson in chart reading coming very soon.

The body of my Reminisce hat is slightly detailed too. A simple “block” stitch turns the stockinette into something a bit more interesting. It’s easy to knit and you’ll find yourself automatically knitting that part after a couple of rows.

I’ve used a soft DK blend for my hat. It’s a single spun, hand-dyed, alpaca/merino/silk blend that shows the detail in the pattern well and drapes gently. Maybe you’ve got a skein of DK stashed away that’d be just perfect?
