INSPIRATION
Classic, chic Herringbone is always in, and worked in smooshy luxurious cashmere makes it your to go accessory this fall season - it will blend seamlessly with both casual and dressy clothes!

This hat uses a mosaic technique with only one color worked per round to achieve a colorwork look without the fuss of floats. The pattern includes two versions of the hat - the difference between them is the use of the two charts and flipped colors and voila! you have two different hats!

KITS
I know I am a bit biased, but if you are looking for a special project for your cashmere this fall season, this is it!
The matching cowl is here and any of the kits for the cowl can also be used for the hat!

The pattern is both written and charted.
