After posting about small-scale knitting alternatives to the amazing Jón lopapeysa pattern last Thursday morning, I saw a photo on Instagram along with a message to me from Kathy Cadigan (@kathycad) that she was borrowing Jón’s colorwork motif for a hat. Which made me super jealous, but the funny thing is she hadn’t seen my blog post yet — it was a total coincidence! I had been fantasizing the night before about applying the yoke pattern to either mitts or a hat, but it turned out Kathy did the very sensible thing of using the simpler chart from the sleeves/waist instead. She posted the finished hat over the weekend (also on Ravelry) and look how spectacular. It’s a lopi for those of us in milder climates — I must knit it.
