Annika was designed to highlight a specialty yarn – a yarn that is highly variegated, handspun, or an art yarn that the knitter may have in smaller quantity. With Annika, the majority of hat is taken up with ivory yarn, a neutral “quiet space” where one’s eyes can rest. This provides a back drop upon which the Colinette’s colors can sparkle.
This hat used 38g or 48m of a fun, highly colored
Colinette yarn Hullaboo. The garter stitch design adds textural interest. The result is a simple, but stunning, slightly slouchy hat, which uses a yarn to its full potential – and yours. Please note: this weight and length may vary according to the yarn used, the manner in which it was spun, the knitter who is knitting it, and how she is currently feeling!
