Keep your ears warm on the slopes with this trio of woolly hats! Designed by Nancy Ekvall for Blue Sky Fibers’ Traveler Series, you’re sure to bring each of these three charming caps along on all your skiing adventures. Starting with cute, retro-inspired stripes, you have the option to knit one of three different crowns—a jaunty, two-tasseled topper, a beanie with a gathered dome, or a cap with a gentle peak.
Blue Sky Fiber's Woolstok makes light, sturdy, and remarkably soft Ski Trio Hats. Made from the fleece of select Peruvian Highland sheep, Woolstok is processed in a state of the art mill. There it’s gently plied, giving a lightness to your toppers without compromising any woolly warmth—you’ll need it when whizzing through all that fresh powder!
Each kit contains the pattern and enough yarn for one stripey hat (1 skein of the main color, plus 2 mini-hanks for stripes). You decide which of three designs to make! Please specify which main color you want when ordering: brown, green, or blue.
Circumference: 18" (all options).
Height: 8" (option 1 with 2 tassels); 8¾" (option 2 with gentle peak); 8½" (option 3 with gathered crown).
