‘Skovsø’ (‘forest lake’) is the Danish word for a place that to me resembles the combination of these saturated colors from Triskelion Yarn – a dark, serene, calm place. Picture that small open space in the beech and pine forest, dark water with streaks of pale sun breaking through the spring foliage, lighting up the scene!

Using 3 colors of Triskelion Scylfing DK, this hat is a little bit of colorful luxury for your head. The simple colorwork pattern makes it a fun little knit. Use up any yarn scraps you have, and enjoy!
