Ghost Ranch is the 4th pattern of my “shifting” series! A really fun way to explore color and texture using the Mosaic knitting method! This hat begins with a two color brioche rib that is then rolled up and transitioned into the textural Mosaic pattern! The Ghost Ranch colorway of Dyed in the Wool was created especially for this project and inspired by my time in the New Mexico desert!
