Variegated Hat

Subtle color changes in the wool-blend yarn and a poufy pompom lend pizzazz to an easy-to-knit ribbed hat.

The Designer

Edie Eckman


Many years ago, Edie Eckman co-owned a yarn shop. No one told her that yarn shop owners don’t actually get time to crochet or knit, so after a few years she closed the shop and turned to designing. She considers herself fully bi-textural, and likes to serve as a Knit-Crochet Diplomat, easing the schism that can exist between the two disciplines.
Edie serves as a technical editor for yarn companies and independent publishers and writes columns for both Creative Knitting and Crochet! magazines. Her designs have appeared in Knitters, Interweave CrochetCreative Knitting, Knit N Style, and many other publications. She has taught at Stitches events, The National Needlearts Association, The Knit & Crochet Show, Midwest Fiber & Folk Art Fair, New York State Sheep & Wool Festival (Rhinebeck), Fall Fiber Festival (Montpelier), and other national venues. Edie travels extensively to teach both knitting and crochet. Her articles and designs have appeared in many yarn company publications and magazines.

David Wise

Growing up around Lake Tahoe has its advantages, especially if you're David Wise. Cliff-jumping, bouncing on the trampoline and mountain biking in the summer and world-class skiing in the winter have helped Wise develop into one of the top young halfpipe skiers in the nation. He also finds the time to balance his young family; often his wife and daughter are present to cheer him on at competitions.
David’s hat design is based on one he crocheted for his wife, Lexi.
