Tyrie Hat

Bottom up beanie ideal for beginner colourwork knitters.

Named after the beautiful shores of the Kingdom of Fife, the Tyrie Hat will have you magically transported to the sights and sounds of the sea in no time. Featured in our Stranded Colourwork Basics course, Tyrie is ideal for beginner colourwork knitters.

This is a fun project that wants you to explore the joys of colour! We designed the pattern to be perfect for mix and matching yarn - so that you can make 2 or even 3 coordinating hats from the same kit. Or, if you are feeling really adventurous, why not try using up some scraps for a truly unique result? We knit up our sample using Stranded Dyeworks BFL DK, who have created the dreamiest Spring and Autumn palettes in kit form for this hat.

Tyrie features a simple 4 stitch repeat - meaning the pattern is easy to memorise and you have no long floats to deal with. The pattern is perfect for those new to colourwork and has been designed to be easy to keep track of whilst you work.

Working from the bottom up, you'll start by making a deep rib, before easing into the colourwork for the central part of the beanie. The pattern ends with a softly gathered crown shaping that requires no colourwork. Tyrie Hat comes in 3 sizes and will swiftly have you adding skills to your toolbox and gifts to your family and friends.
