There’s something very peaceful about creating a handknit hat. The rhythm of the needles, the flicking of the yarn, and the quiet moments stolen for this simple act of pleasure are all reasons why hats are such a popular thing to knit. The world outside may be turned on end, but for a brief time you find peace. This hat is worked in two colors of Anzula Gerty, with natural wooly goodness that plumps when blocked. The swirls are created with stranded knitting, intended for knitters with colorwork experience who are comfortable trapping floats as needed. Take some time for yourself. Take time to make Swirled Peace.
