Meadowcroft Slouchy Hat Kit (Fair Isle)Meadowcroft Dyeworks
Stylish, intensely colorful, and the ultimate in softness, a hat made from Meadowcroft Rockshelter Worsted yarn will fast become a favorite of whomever its intended recipient may be (but we hope the knitter gets at least one)!
These yarns are spun in 4 plies from incredibly fine, luxuriously soft 100% superwash merino. In worsted weight, gauge is 21 sts & 25 rows per 4″ / 10 cm using US #8 needles. You’ll need a 16″ / 40cm pair of US US #7 / 4.5mm circular needles, a pair of 16″ / 40cm #8 / 5.0mm circular needles, and a set of #8 / 5.0 dpns, or simply use long #7 & #8 circs with the magic loop technique. Yarns are beautifully presented as small, twisted hanks accompanied by a professionally printed cover page with a full color image of a completed hat, an insert with the names and descriptions of the included yarns, and packed in a heavy, recloseable poly bag.
This knits up fast, and it has no long patterns to remember. Owing to the elasticity of wool, and the vibrancy and ultimate softness of Meadowcroft yarns, this will be a favorite hat of whomever is lucky enough to be its recipient.
This stylish, colorful, fun-loving hat is currently available in several colorways with more coming. Your kit includes a little more of each color than you’ll actually need, about 130 grams / 280 yards of soft, soft, soft, brilliantly colored yarns.
The pattern is not included but is available as a free Ravelry download. If you would like for us to print a copy of the pattern for you, please include that in your order notes.
