This striped hat is knit with many shades of blue from very light to very dark. Woven through some of the blues are threads of golden yellow. The last photo was taken outdoors and shows the colors best. The color names of this new designer yarn made in Italy all come from nature and this hat is hand knit with Ocean Deep.
The yarn is thicker than average, all wool, and quite soft and squishy. These hats just might be my warmest. (Phoenix is not the best place to test winter hats.) They are definitely warmer than synthetics because they are all wool. The 2 x 2 ribbing also makes for a thicker fabric and of course you’ll wear it doubled over your ears.
Did I mention that these are VERY stretchy hats and will fit even the largest heads? Yes, they will!
I’m so excited about this wonderful, new, self-striping wool yarn from Italy that I went back to buy more as soon as I finished my first hat.
