Rise Hat & Cowl Using Shibui Drift/Silk Cloud
Rise, a free hat and cowl pattern from Shibui, is an absolute treat on the needles. Knit in the round, you’ll enjoy how the cables twist back and forth, offering interest, texture, and posh softness. The universally flattering size of the Rise Cowl makes it just right over a dress or t-shirt, and it tucks quite nicely inside a woollen coat. The Rise Hat is warm and squishy over your ears, and has a nice touch of slouch at the crown. As happy as we were to put these pieces on, we were sorry when they were finished!
As if Shibui Drift wasn’t dreamy enough—when you pair it with Shibui Silk Cloud, you can’t put down the needles. For the Rise Hat & Cowl, you hold one strand of worsted-weight Drift and one strand of lace-weight Silk Cloud together throughout. Fiber content alone makes this a dream combination—merino, cashmere, silk, and mohair. Now, what color should we do next?
