Through the vision of a hat design delicately adorned with star motifs and inspiration from Wool Days Scout yarn, the Winter Dusk Hat pattern has been created. I recommend knitting yours with Scout too, although any 100g skein of DK weight yarn from your stash will work. Perhaps surprisingly, the star motifs on this hat are performed without any cabling, making this hat quick and easy to knit. Winter Dusk will become your go-to accessory for chilly days, keeping you cozy and stylish whatever the occasion.
