My very own Foliage

I had my mom and my sister keep the original Foliage hats so I made one for myself.

I started it when I still held out hope of going to Rhinebeck and the Franklin County Fiber Twist, but law school intervened. Thank you all so much for your comments on what kind of suit I should get. I ended up getting something from Ann Taylor Loft in very dark brown. And I ended up making it to the quarterfinals in Mock Trial. Yay!

  1. Pretty! I’m buying yarn for a friend soon to make that hat as her first serious project. I handed her yarn for a garter scarf last spring, and this fall have taught her ribbing. Now I’m going to ribbing, lace, and chart reading. It’s going to be great! Because I love the Foliage pattern. ^_^ And congrats on Mock Trial!

  2. I’ve been wearing my Foliage for a couple of days now going to and from work. I love it! I also wore it to a football (soccer) game this weekend and the girl next to me gave me compliments on it. Thanks again for sharing your pattern with us!

  3. I love your foliage 🙂 Very nice variegated green, it’s so pretty! And it’s so much fun to see all the Foliages popping up all over!!

    Congrats on Mock Trial!!

  4. I am currently making a Foliage hat and I have to tell you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern! It’s easy, quick, clever yet yields a gorgeous hat that looks much more complicated than it is. I’m going to be done shortly and have made some modifications by using size 9 needles and generally following version 1 but adding one half of the leaf chart. I’ll post a photo on my blog soon. THANK YOU so much for this pattern. I will be making many more!

  5. Love the hat! Such a great design. I started one last night and got all tangled up but I think that was due to my tiredness–not the pattern! Also, I love the up-close clapotis view at the top of your page. I am going to do that one as well! From one grad student to another: knit to stay sane.

  6. This is such a beautiful pattern, but I’m having THE hardest time of my life starting this hat. I’m not inexperienced in juggling loads of needles, but everytime I start this I end up ripping it out after 4 rounds. At knitting club, my friends just look at me with pity in their eyes. I know I’ll forget all about the hard start when I have the hat on my head, but I just need some help getting started…any advice.

  7. Hello! I love this pattern and I am trying to make it for my roommate. I already tried it once and I got the beginning 5 dpneedle part but once I get to the circular I mess up…the pattern last time was off and so there were no leaves…just a mess of openings and knits. This time I am sure I did the beginning part right and knitty.com says I should have 64 sts but I have 66! I don’t know what’s going on. If there is any help you can give I would be very grateful.
    Thanks!
    p.s. I’m a college student too, I’m so glad to be on break! Happy New Year!!!
