From now thru next Saturday - Aug 13 - Anchor Steam will be 25% off with the Rav code “Pioneer”. If you already have yarn on hand, you can cast on right away - and if you don’t, Kristine at A Verb For Keeping Warm is working on some Pioneer color combinations in kits for this pattern, which will be available next week! I’ll be on the road then, but will post an updated link to the shop right here and on my other social media.

If you haven’t worked with her beautiful, hand dyed, CA sourced organic merino before, you now have an excuse and a discount to use!

Plus a way to ease into that Fall knitting….

I love a deep ribbing on my hats, but I often find that I fold it back at the nape of my neck for the perfect amount of slouch. In this design I decided to play with short rows on the ribbing and make a hat that would slouch exactly as I want it to without any adjustments.

Featuring a bit of simple colorwork to keep things interesting (my blue is Pacific Sailor and the accent is Tree Fort) and knit up in beautiful organic merino yarn from A Verb For Keeping Warm, this is a quick, satisfying project that works up in no time.

It’s a great excuse to try some Pioneer, and it’s a good project to tote around and work on during these last days of summer….
