Note: This hat requires just over 1 skein or 130+ yards of yarn. If you get 2 skeins or 260 yards, you will have enough to make both the hat and the matching wrist warmers

Pattern description from Arctic Lace: “This set of accessories allows you to practice following an easy lace chart. The hat and wrist warmers are knitted in the round with sport-weight qiviut, and the scarf is knitted back and forth in lace-weight cashmere. This simple design with parallel lines reminds me of the wood-splint fish traps and grass fish bags that the Yup’ik people once used.”
