Meet Téamh, my new hat design! Téamh is Irish Gaelic for “warmth,” and this hat, with its deep brim, cables and garter texture, is sure to warm the wearer. Teamh includes a deep ribbed brim and an easy four-row stitch pattern for the body (pretty perfect for knitting during the Olympics!). Knit it longer for a deeper brim and more ear coverage, or a bit shorter for more of a beanie style.
Téamh is knit in Luna, Spirit Trail Fiberworks’ 100% non-shrink organic wool worsted weight base. My daughter’s hat was knit in the “Sea Shadows” colorway, which is currently out of stock, but there are lots of other great colors in stock. This pattern will also work in STF Verdande, for a super-soft, super-luxurious option!
Luna is really fabulous; I love working with it, and this one-skein project is the perfect opportunity to give this new base a try. It’s been processed organically, from mulesing-free, organically-raised sheep on the farm through processing at the mill. It’s machine washable, but because it’s “superwashed” with a GOTS-certified organic process that uses neither acids to strip the follicles from the fibers, or polymers to coat them, it’s not called “superwash.” Because of the special non-shrink process, it still feels like wool, too. I still recommend handwashing this yarn, or machine washing on gentle, and laying flat to dry whenever possible.
