Woolen spun Loft yarn adds texture and depth to the artful colorwork in the Dovera hat. With subtle beret-like shaping integrated into an intricate stranded motif, Dovera will satisfy experienced knitters and colorwork novices alike. The airiness of fingering-weight Loft creates a sturdy yet lightweight fabric that will keep its shape through plenty of wear.

Please note: the stitch patterns for this garment are charted only.


The hat is worked circularly from brim to crown.
