Please welcome the newest member of my knit family:
兜 | Kabuto :Japanese for (n) helmet from from traditional Japanese Samurai Armour circa 16th Century.
This hat uses reverse stocking stitch to provide a monolithic dimension to the knitted fabric, whilst stocking stitch stripes and an assymmetric vertical expressed seam edge provides interest and detail. Short-row shaping at the nape ensures a stylish slouch and fit to the head.
Worked here in yellow silk [Shibui Heichi] and grey wool [Brooklyn Tweed Shelter].
The pattern has 4 sizing options and suitable for either sex.
This is an extension of my earlier Tekkō Arm/Handwarmers and partners perfectly with these.
if you’d like to win a copy of the new pattern, [or reimbursement if you cannot wait!] please leave me a comment with a valid email address or ravelry username by friday, 18th november.
