The Southern Andes are popular among independent, self-sufficient hikers, with easy-to-climb volcanoes, arid deserts, and some of the largest ice fields on earth. With a bit of stranded knitting and lots of texture, this hat inspired by the Southern Andes in heathered Highland Lux by HiKoo® is guaranteed to bring this diverse mountain-scape to life.

The landscape’s foundation begins with ribbing, a series of twisted stitches, and various knits and purls. The peaks are then formed with subtle stranded colorwork using two contrasting colors. The Andean Highland Wool and Kid Mohair blend of Highland Lux is well suited to keep you warm and comfortable on a neighborhood walk, or a hike through the tundra.
