The Volitare Beanie is a relaxed fit, lightweight hat featuring texture and color. Using a unique style of colorwork, stitches are wrapped with a contrasting yarn from Spincycle’s Dyed In The Wool to create a kind of “float” on the outside of the hat. Bobble are also included to enhance the textured appearance. The hat is knit with The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers Moon Sisters yarn, a soft and smooth merino yarn with a tiny bit of subtle sparkle. The combination of these yarns together create a soft fun project that will keep you engaged until the very end. Top with a pom pom and let this hat ease you into fall.
