Knitting the Night Sky: The Borealis Hat

Course Overview


Let the colors of the Northern Aurora Borealis sky inspire this delightful winter hat knit with traditional Icelandic wool. This is an intriguing design using Scandinavian stranded knitting techniques, corrugated rib, and optional fanciful hat toppers that make every hat as unique and magical as the winter night sky and the creator. Knitters should be able to cast on, knit, and purl easily. The pattern cost of $5 will be paid to the instructor at the beginning of class. Materials will cost an additional $15-25 for students purchasing yarn and needles from instructor. Youth ages 12+ are welcome to participate with an adult.

Required Tools

  • Students may choose to bring their own 4-6 colors of your own Lettlopi or worsted weight yarn (4.5 st/inch). Or, the instructor will have a variety of colors available for purchase. Many colors of amounts needed will be available for purchase from the instructor.
  • US size 6 and 7 16" circular and double point needles. These can also be purchased from the instructor if needed.
