Woolen spun Loft yarn adds texture and depth to the artful colorwork in the Dovera hat. With subtle beret-like shaping integrated into an intricate stranded motif, Dovera will satisfy experienced knitters and colorwork novices alike. The airiness of fingering-weight Loft creates a sturdy yet lightweight fabric that will keep its shape through plenty of wear.
The Dovera hat is knit in the round from the brim to the crown, which is shaped with decreases that are incorporated into the colorwork. The stranded colorwork motif, illustrated in a chart, uses no more than two colors each round and incorporates four different colors of Loft.
