At String, we love sharing the hottest and newest designs! Introducing “Petra’s Perfect Hat”. This great design was not a planned one; it started when Petra decided to make a hat for a friend as a gift. She just picked up the needles and started knitting with one of her favorite yarns - String's exclusive Classica cashmere. When she got to the top of the hat, she decided to change it up a bit.

Petras Perfect Hat
"After playing with some pattern stitches, I liked the way the garter stitch worked with the decreases", says Petra. The result is a crown shaping that looks different from many other hat designs.

The real fun began once she brought the hat into the store! One customer decided to start with a few rows of stockinette followed by a few garter rows because she wanted to run ribbon thru it. Then “everyone” decided to hold one strand of S. Charles Celine yarn with the cashmere to give it a bit of a twinkle. This collaboration is how "Petra's Perfect Hat" was created. The hat looks amazing as the sun hits the delicate little shimmers!

The hat is perfect because it is very easy to make; it's chic and as much fun to wear as it is to knit! Our customers love it, making it over and over again and now you can as well!
