From Susan — One for the Hubby

Can you stand another freebie??  I just finished a hat for my husband to wear during the 2018 Birkebeiner.  The race occurs right when the Winter Games wrap up, so it is very festive and exciting!  This year a local female skier, Jessie Diggins, is on the US team.  Last season, Diggins became the most decorated U.S. cross-country skier, male or female, in world championship history.  So we are really looking forward to seeing how she does!

I reverse engineered the hat from photographs and wrote it up as a pattern — though others beat me to it!  I used invisible stranding to do the red on the diamond motif, which was very annoying to say the least!  Duplicate stitch may be a better way to go!


  1. Beautiful hat! I love the colors. May I please ask what “invisible stranding” is? Thank you for sharing the pattern with us 🙂

  2. Wonderful! I see the same pattern is used in the closing ceremonies sweater and gloves. I may have to make a pair of fingerless mitts as well. Thank you!

  4. I saw your beautiful hat. I was excited when I saw your reference to Hayward Wisconsin, I live in Spooner, which is 27 miles away. Good luck at the Berkie.
