I live along the base of the impressive Wasatch Front mountain range — as does the local yarn shop The Wool Cabin — within minutes from gorgeous canyons, waterfall hikes, and scenic outlooks. Using elongated stitches, the Millcreek Hat is patterned in a subtle, slouchy tribute to these towering beauties and their snow-topped peaks! In worsted weight superwash merino from Marianated Yarns, it’s a quick and enjoyable knit.

Pattern contains charted and written instructions.
