Included as part of Point/Counterpoint Volume 4. Two designers + two yarns = inspiration through collaboration. Each designer independently created an accessory, then sent only a photo of the finished object to the other. In response, the designers used the same yarn to create a new accessory inspired by the first, thus making a set. The only limit is their creativity!

At first glance, gray can seem boring. But take a gradient of grays, mix them up, and suddenly whole new worlds open up. This dynamic colorwork hat turns boring gray upside down.

The Parallelograys hat is full of clever details, like stitch counts that make parallelograms happen without thinking, and shifting rounds that mean even the sharpest eyes will be unable to spot a seam. And variety of sizes means you’ll be able to outfit your whole family… and any friends who might want some exciting gray in their lives, too.
