There is Beauty in Simplicity

The Glen Abbey Hat is a knitted representation of my design philosophy: gorgeous natural yarns + clean lines and patterns = modern, wearable hand-knits.

But being wearable isn’t enough--as knitters, we also want our projects to be enjoyable.

The Glen Abbey Hat won’t disappoint. Not only is the yarn is a delight to work with, but the pattern can be quickly and easily committed to memory, for an engaging, yet relaxing, knitting experience.
