This season has been all about stepping out of my comfort zone with my yarn choices. One thing I’ve never done, until now, is get my hands on hand-dyed yarn. But when Expression Fiber Arts showed up on my Facebook feed one day, I was captivated by the gorgeousness of the yarn. I knew I had to try it! The pearlescent look of this pattern comes from that gorgeous merino silk yarn, but any #4 worsted yarn will work for the pattern (don’t forget to check your gauge!).

This hat has great texture and just the right amount of slouch. After I finished the pattern, I felt like it needed a little contrast. So, I added a pom pom with some white unlabeled yarn from my stash. The pom pom is totally optional and is not included in the yardage count.
