snuggery (n.) – a snug place or position; a comfortable or cozy room.

In 2021, I’m focusing my pattern designs on things that make me happy or that I wish for my fellow knitters. I hope this cozy, warm hat becomes a portable snuggery for you, a place where you can feel a little bit more safe and snug no matter where you are. Knit in a plush worsted-weight wool with squishy slip stitch panels to add layers of warmth and columns of dancing eyelets to prevent you from overheating, this hat is the perfect accessory for keeping you comfortable through the remainder of the cold wintry months.

The Snuggery Hat, a light blue knit hat with zig-zag eyelets, is shown on a wooden head model. To the left is an antique print in a white frame.

My sample is knit with a skein of worsted-weight yarn from Hypothesis Yarns. Chrissy is a remarkably talented dyer with an eye for subtle color combinations that transition gracefully from one to another. I chose one of her solid skeins, though, because this color is fascinating. Depending on the light, it shows up as gray, light blue, or a seafoam green. Pure magic.

The hat comes in four different sizes to accommodate a range of heads. That’s because I believe garments aren’t the only things that should be size inclusive. Heads, hands, and feet come in different sizes and shapes, too!
