Dyea Hat Kit

$ 63.00 Regular price $ 105.00

Dyea by Caitlin Hunter is a quick and simple colorwork hat, great for beginner knitters or gift knitting. It is named for Dyea, Alaska, a former Gold Rush town in the Klondike that is now a ghost town.

The pattern has short floats and easy to memorize repeats, making it an excellent first colorwork project! It is also a good project for experienced knitters as a quick gift knit or stash buster. The pattern is written with the option of the folded or unfolded brim. 

The hat is knit with AMORES Pilar- a DK Cashmere blend that is a dream on your needles. It's soft. It's squishy. It's hand-dyed. It never splits while you're working, and it has beautiful stitch definition. This is the kind of yarn that makes an heirloom project.
