The Hillsdale is a cozy & warm hat with a simple, yet beautiful colorwork chevron design. The hat kit features Blue Sky Fibers Skyland, a gorgeously soft DK weight yarn with the glow of alpaca & the subtle shimmer of silk. The wool offers stability for garments, while round, plied strands deliver beautiful stitch definition for cabled accessories & colorwork.
With two generous size hanks of Skyland, the kit has enough yarn to make two hats; one for you & one for a friend!
The kit includes 2 skeins of Blue Sky Fibers Skyland (1 skein each of colors North Star & Night Fall), a printed Hillsdale Hat pattern by Michael Vloedman & a small, cotton Blue Sky Fibers bag.
