Finished Object : Barley Hat

Autumn is definitely here, temperatures are getting cooler, leaves are turning yellow, orange, red…This is gorgeous, I love this time of the year! We can now start wearing hats again which is perfect for Big Daddy to show off the one I just finished : The Barley Hat by Tin Can Knits a pattern from the Simple Collection.

This was a relaxing and beautiful knit. The pattern features a garter panel that gives some interesting texture to the hat whilst highlighting the beautiful color variegation of the yarn. I blocked it with my Eucalan no rinse wash as usual, this is now my Finished Objects’ ritual 🙂 I followed the instructions for a slouchier hat and … Big Daddy loves it! We took some photos while having a walk in a part of Montréal called Mont-Royal (the French district) where we like to go to have a look at the architecture of the buildings.
