Great yarn / hat combo – I highly recommend this new (at least, new to me and just recently available online) yarn from Tolt Yarn & Wool. It’s YOTH Big Sister – a DK-weight in a beautiful “raw palette” of colors. It is incredibly soft, yet holds structure really well. I wanted to buy a skein in every color!
The pattern – Rutherford – was designed for this yarn, I believe, and it shows it off beautifully. It’s simple and (fairly) quick, and I like the fact that it’s both unisex and reversible. I knit on US 5s 16″ circulars, and the hat takes only one skein (with a fair amount left over). The colors are Cacao (on the right) and Portabella – I have another WIP in Sea Salt. If I can come up with enough one-skein projects, maybe I can work my way through the entire palette . . .Pin It
