Emily Explains: Assembly for Gazost

Last Thanksgiving, long before my time at Berroco, I was sitting on the couch with my dad watching an old movie, when all of a sudden, he paused it and had an idea. My businessman, sports-loving, grill-aficionado father had a design idea for me. Usually, these idea are silly and revolve around golf or sailing, but this one was pretty great! He pointed to the frozen the image of Cary Grant driving down a winding road with a beautiful woman in a convertible. The woman was wearing a gorgeous hat. “These could be the next great knitted hats!”

Well, my Dad wasn’t too far off. One of my favorite patterns in our current collection is Gazost from booklet #337. It’s a retro hat that looks just like the one in the movie! I want to be driving down a windy road with Cary Grant wearing this hat.


With so much style and grace, I was sold on this hat instantly. The only thing left to do is figure out how to make it! Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it looks! Gazost is actually a texturally knitted rectangle, twisted together. (The buttons pictured on the back are just for decoration)

Here’s how you put it together:

I hope you love Gazost as much as I do!

Happy Knitting!
