Northern Lights Knit Hat

Northern Lights Knit Hat

Add a pop of color to your winter gear when you make the Northern Lights Knit Hat! This easy knit hat pattern is as stylish as can be and will be a cheerful accessory to wear during the dull days of winter.

From the blogger: "This is a new and absolutely adorable pattern for the cable hat in the gradient colors. I like this braid pattern and even earlier used it for my famous Bulky Braided Headband. The secret about this hat is that you do not need to buy a special yarn to make that smooth change of colors. It will be enough if you have 2 skeins of two different but at the same time matching colors. Knit in two strands of yarn at one and follow the pattern for step-by-step explanation."

How do you get the one color at the top of the hat? Love this pattern.

I am using 2 balls of yarn at the same time. Check this pattern for better understanding how it works http//

This is so pretty. The grey and teal work so well together, and the cables are beautiful.

I love the ombre effect on this hat. The aqua adds such a fun pop of color to the neutral grey. I also love the pretty cable stitch. It's too advanced for me, but I'll save this pattern for once I am a more advanced knitter.

I love the look of cables, but I've never tried them before. This hat definitely makes me want to give them a go!
