Riverspan is a slouchy, colourwork hat. Knit from hand-dyed BFL, it is exceptionally soft and warm, and has just enough drape to keep it slouchy. The architecture of trusses and peaks in the motif are inspired by the iconic bridges that span the Grand river, here in my home town of Cambridge, Ontario.

The pattern contains colourwork charts for 2 different palette options, shown in the photos. The pattern and yarn are available together as a kit here: https://dawnorchid.ca/yarn/kits/
