This colorwork hat is knit with two colors and features a twisted rib brim. The colorwork pattern will show off a beautiful hand-spun or gorgeous bright indie dyed yarn. Raid your stash for some worsted, dk, or one of each and adjust the size by adding or eliminating the pattern repeat.

Ideal for worsted, DK or one of each. Tips and notes included for color work knitting, substituting DK weight yarn, adjusting the fit and hat style (beanie or slouchy), and alternate brim options. All the tools to knit this to your perfect fit and style!

The Grange Hat complements the The Grange cowl. Knit a matching set or one or the other. The Grange Hat is also written to many sizes meaning one for the entire family!

The Grange is named for a special farm to table spot in Duvall, Washington where an evening wrapped up my amazing trip to the PNW visiting amazing friends.
