As a child growing up on the prairies, I spent many summers camping. When my family and I would go on hikes I remember the speargrass piercing through my pant legs. Because of its’ shape, it can easily poke through yet they are hard to remove because the ends of the arrow are splayed out. How cool is nature?
I’ve always really loved the look of chevrons in handspun yarn. Speargrass is a pattern that really lets the yarn speak for itself. The pattern is easy to remember, and you can see the design unfold before your eyes as you are knitting. This hat can be made using many types of fibres, and look great on either men or women.
