I love the subtle (and not so subtle) variations in the colors of yarn dyed in small batches. When I knit with them I want to have fabric that lets the yarn shine but I also want to keep it interesting. For the Loops and Rope Hat and the matching fingerless mitts, reverse stockinette is contrasted with a striking cable pattern that won’t get lost in variegated yarn or make a bold statement in a solid color.

Sale Buy both patterns are receive $2 off the pair. No code needed just add both to your cart.

Details: This hat is knit from the brim up. There are instructions for a folded brim (blue sample) or a flat brim (gray sample). With either of the yarns used in the sample there should be enough yardage to make the matching fingerless mitts but you will use every yard.
