Diverging cables travel across this hat, mimicking the maelstrom of Saltstraumen, the strait just outside Bodø with one of the strongest tidal currents in the world. Lofoten Wool’s 2-trådet Røstkolleksjon makes the perfect companion, with wool from Røst in undyed and plant-dyed shades.

Worked in the round from the bottom up.

Finished dimensions
After Blocking: 44cm circumference (unstretched), 22cm in height from brim to crown
Note that the finished fabric is very stretchy.

Poncho in photos is the Oslo - Paris Poncho by Julie Knits in Paris, also available in the 2017 festival magazine.
