make a speckled hat!

Quince and Co.

frolic hat pattern

I wear hats all fall, winter and spring. I tend to be cold all the time, so it's a great way to stay warm through the chilly months! One of my favorite hats I wear is from Hetterson so I am excited that Hannah is sharing her secret knitting pattern with us today! 


She used the gorgeous Quince yarns from Maine to make this adorable speckled hat. If you want the same colors for your hat, use the Puffin yarns in Nasturtium and Egret (you just need one skein of each color!). Or, explore the Quince + Co. yarns to find your own favorite colors. We had a tough time choosing!


We paired the hat with the softest cashmere striped sweater from Frances Maya vintage skirt, organic cotton socks from Fred Meyer, and Swedish clogs by Torpatoffeln (Find similar clogs here). Thank you to Lisa Warninger for the beautiful photography.

  1. This is great, what a nice hat! I’m not sure how I missed it before, but that’s so exciting Quince and Co. are based in Maine. It’s so dangerously tempting knowing I can get their yarn in Portland… oh man. I used their yarn to make myself a sweater, and I love it, it’s great to work with.

  2. Can you tell me how you add the white speckles/hearts? Do you cut and knot each speckle on the inside or continue the speckled yarn throughout the hat. Thanks.
