Quoth

Quoth by Alexandra Tinsley - knitted hat pattern  

Last year, Woolgirl asked me to design a hat based on Edgar Allen Poe's poem "The Raven" (one of my favorites, of course, because whose favorites isn't it one of?) for her Poet's Club. Now the resulting hat, Quoth, is available to one and all!

I don't often design with variegated yarns so being tasked to show off this lovely custom-Poe-colored Biscotte & Cie Gobelin was a fun challenge. I chose to go with feathery panels of elongated stitches that make the most of the colors and also echo raven plumage and quill pens. (I do think that I'd like to make another version in a semi-solid black, for maximum ravenosity, though!)
