All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmermann, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

Check out my group, Minnesota Nice Knits and Facebook Page, Minnesota Nice Knits for testing calls and special offers!

The Navigator Slouch would make a perfect first stranded colorwork project. I have included tips and links to make your project a success, from choosing a color combo to various methods of holding your yarn. The hat is also a relaxing knit for those with some stranded colorwork under their belt and makes a great quick gift for toddlers through adults!

The main stitch pattern reminded me of compasses, and this hat will help guide your way through the cold winter :-)

This pattern has been tested and approved, and I offer full pattern support via ravelry message.
