The Black Mountain Hat is a companion piece to my Black Mountain Cowl. The original design was created in response to Anni Albers’ dictum that an artist or designer should have to “start at zero” at least once in their career. The initial colorwork design was created during a 14-day quarantine following a spring break trip to Italy with my art and graphic design students. COVID-19 feels like a “start at zero” moment for so many people.

Suggested Yarn
The hat is created from one Blue Sky 50g skein paired with one Blue Sky Woolstok Bundle. Five potential colorways and charts are available in the pattern.

Colorway pairings include:
Cool with Midnight Sea
Warm with Deep Velvet
Neutral with Cast Iron
Holiday Cheer with Highland Fleece
Holiday Frost with Highland Fleece
