The Umpqua Hat is a perfect first project for stranded colorwork. Using no more than two colors at one time, this unisex hat offers three different sizes for the perfect fit. Pick three different colors – one each of a light, medium, and dark – in worsted weight yarn and get ready to cast on! We’ll cover color dominance, tension, floats, and basic chart reading.
- Yarn: 1 skein each Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in 3 colors (one light, one medium, and one dark), or two skeins of Woolstok in main color and one skein each in two contrasting colors.
- Needles: 16″ circulars in US 5 and 7, DPNs in US 7. NOTE: If you are familiar with magic loop knitting you can use US 5 and 7 32-inch circulars (or interchangeables with a 32-inch cord). The instructor will NOT teach the magic loop method as part of this class.
- Pattern: Umpqua Hat, by Caitlin Hunter, available in the shop via Ravelry In-Store Sales.
