Pick your weight (DK or Worsted), pick your decreases (Cross or Swirl), put 'em together and put it on yer head. And barely a purl, I promise!

(Side note photo tip: Don't take photos in the dang snow. Your camera underexposes everything and you squint a lot. Grumble.)

The name comes from the "Relaxation Station", where I was waiting for a delightful chair massage while dreaming this up. Anyway... these hats have quickly risen to the top of the wearing-pile! The worsted one especially is quite cozy.




PS: Totes cute outfit yeah? I am embracing the shorts-with-tights-and-boots trend pretty wholeheartedly. Otherwise I never wear shorts. That gauzy shirt is a little weird though.

  1. Love it!!! I have a skein of malabrigo worsted that I wanted to make a hat out of but didn't have a specific pattern in mind yet. Found it. Thank you :) Great job!!

  2. This is so cute! But I'm perplexed by your promise of minimal purling... is it not garter-stitch in the round? Or inside-out stockinette? I'm working on an in-the-round garter stitch rim and it's taking forever for some reason! I guess the fact that I'm using DK/worsted on US3 needles doesn't help ;(

  3. It is indeed reverse stockinette...but it's done sneakily ;-)
