Mist Slouchy Ribbed Hat by Kim Hargreaves
This a great pattern for an inexperienced knitter. If you can confidently do the knit and purl stitch and cast on, then this hat is a great project for you. The hat is knitted in a Fisherman’s Rib (knit stitch only) which produces a thick, springy and lush reversible fabric which will keep you really warm.
Pattern and Yarn
This pattern was designed by Kim Hargreaves, and is available in the Rowan book Still. The Darkneess Cosy Hooded Coat is also taken from this book.
The yarn is the Rowan Kid Classic and Rowan Kidsilk Haze. For the Kid Classic I used the shade Canard (871) and for the Kidsilk Haze I used Alhambra (666).

Thanks so much for all these wonderful podcast and videos. It is so refreshing to hear from an expert in her field.
I’m new to knitting. Is it possible to construct Mist by Kim Hargreaves in the round?
In theory, I guess you could modify the pattern to be knitted in the round, but I wouldn’t recommend it, particularly for a new knitter. Take the chance to have some success with seaming on a small project, and then you’ll be happy to use it for bigger projects. Seaming is a great tool to have in your repertoire.
does anyone have this pattern available? The book is no longer in print. Im a beginner and I love this pattern and would like to follow the tutorial.
