I never tire of creating hats, especially when I get to work with an amazing yarn. Jared Flood’s new American wool yarn, SHELTER, was a delight to work with and it resulted in an incredibly light weight and soft wooly beanie. A hat is the perfect size to explore fun techniques like stripes, cables, and slipped stitches.
So, choose between written or charted instructions and dive right in!
