This wonderful hat knits up quickly in bulky weight yarn for the intermediate knitter who is familiar with colorwork.  Erica Schlueter has created a gem that is featured in Knitscene Magazine Winter 2017.  This delightful hat features 2 bears and 2 snowflakes between the decreases on the top.  This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up.

Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.  For extra flair, add one of these pom poms!

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: MountainTop Blackthorn by Classic Elite Yarns (50% Alpaca/50% Wool; 100g/120yds): 1 Skein Main Color (MC) & 1 Skein Contrasting Color (CC). Shown in Beaver Gray & Alabaster

ALTERNATE YARN: Lamb's Pride Bulky by Brown Sheep Co. (85% USA Wool / 15% USA Mohair; 113g/125yds): 1 Skein MC & 1 Skein CC.  One skein of each color will make 2 complete hats, one in the reverse colors of the first hat.  This is a wonderful yarn to knit bulky weight hats and has lovely stitch definition, warmth and a little sheen from the mohair.  It is a pleasure to knit this single ply yarn with a tight twist.

ALTERNATE YARN: Baby Alpaca Chunky by Cascade Yarns (100% Baby Alpaca; 100g/108yds): 1 Skein MC & 1 Skein CC.  One skein of each color will make 1 complete hat.  This sumptuous yarn is warmer & softer than wool but does not have the elasticity of wool.  Use Baby Alpaca Chunky if you want a luxury item fit for a queen or king.  Please swatch, wash, and then measure to make sure that your gauge is accurate.  Alpaca is known to grow with washing.
