Pattern: Hampton

Hampton is the second hat in my collection, and while Gorham started the whole project, Hampton was the one that started making it feel like a cohesive group. I went to Hampton Beach so many times when I was a kid-at least two or three times a summer, usually significantly more. We went a couple times just with the summer rec program every year, and then there would be family trips and parties with friends thrown in as well. Nine times out of ten, if I was going to a beach, it would be this one.

The scalloped rib border and circular lace motif both evoke the nautical feel of the coast at Hampton. No matter where you are, Hampton is reminiscent of charming, breezy days by the water, and everyday adventures with friends.

  1. I am loving these hats! :-)
    I finally worked out how to upload patterns to Ravelry - first pattern out today! It's a good feeling! :-)

  2. I love your hats, they're so lovely! I just knit a hat a while back and I'm not as crazy about how it turned out. I've been thinking about ripping it back and reknitting it in another pattern - and I'm thinking of one of these! Possibly this one. :)
