A slouchy hat that's light enough for year-round wear and super stripey fun to knit! Blue Sky Fibers has assembled this kit in their Woolstok yarn. Made of the finest woollen fleece, this worsted-weight yarn is strong and sturdy, gently plied to give it loft, lightness and a soft hand. Kit includes all 21 colors in 5 gram mini-hanks and the pattern too. Ribbed brim keeps hat nicely in place, and then it's simple stockinette in the round. All the math, ratios and color sequencing is figured out for you—a quick project that lets you play with every crayon in the box!
Gauge is vital for this project, as the kit includes enough fiber for each stripey section, but no more. Be sure to measure gauge!
If you are looking to make the 21 Color Fair Isle hat, it takes one of these kits + one skein of Woolstok in whichever color you wish. Nab the adorable, faux fur pom pom here.
