Caribou Mountains Hat Pattern

Our newest pattern is here!!

In house designer and co-founder, Kalea Turner-Beckman is releasing her newest pattern for the winter season. The Caribou Mountains Hat.
This hat is a fun, quick knit, and the triangle mountain pattern is easy to follow and looks so great when it is finished.

The Story:
One of Kalea's close friends did some yarn tourism while in Scotland and brought her back a skein of hand dyed green, hand spun yarn. As soon as she held it in her hands she knew it needed to be triangles. As she started knitting the hat with it, she noticed that the feel of the hand spun yarn from Scotland reminded her of the yarn she is making from Alberta fibres. Kalea's practice of using local fibre and using natural dyes is reflected in the yarn she received as a gift; it was made in Scotland from their local fibres and dyed with natural dyes. Once she had finished the hat from the Scottish yarn, she spun some of her own yarn to make the pattern sample.

We suggest you try your hand at knitting this hat with some of the hand spun yarn we have in our shop, (you can even purchase a skein that Kalea herself has spun), or you can use another worsted weight yarn of your choosing. We understand that sometimes one must use up yarn from one's stash....

You can come on down to the shop to see Kalea's beautiful work in person and get a printed copy of the pattern, or head to Ravelry or Etsy to get a digital copy. 

See you soon, and happy knitting!
