This pattern was originally published as For Yarn’s Sake’s contribution to the 2018 Rose City Yarn Crawl, March 1 – 4, 2018 in Portland, Oregon. Each shop’s pattern(s) will be available free with purchase at that shop during the Rose City Yarn Crawl. All patterns will also be available for download individually or as part of our 2018 Collection: Waterways: 2018 Rose City Yarn Crawl Pattern Collection.

Thundering spray from massive falls along a waterfall trail loop. Sun-soaked old growth giants and majestic snow-capped mountain peaks. Crystal clear rapids contrasted by gentle river stretches, ideal for wading in with your fly-fishing pole. All hallmarks of the magnificent McKenzie River - one of Oregon’s true gems. And the inspiration behind our McKenzie Hat, designed exclusively for the 2018 Rose City Yarn Crawl.

Main Color - Spincycle Yarns Private Label (100% American Merino Wool, 50 grams / 170 yards); 1 skein

Contrast Color - Spincycle Yarns Dyed In the Wool (100% American Wool, 50 grams / 200 yards); 1 skein.

Shown in Tangled Up in Blue (CC) & Light Brown Solid (MC), Cataclysm (CC) & Light Brown Solid (MC), and Melancholia (CC) & Dark Brown Solid (MC).

If you choose to knit the brim using Private Label Solid (MC) rather than Dyed in the Wool (CC), you will need a second skein of Private Label Solid.
