Project Inspiration
Sometimes you see a hat on somebody and you immediately know you need to make it! That's what happened when we saw the Barley Hat by tincanknits made out of Cascade Color Duo.  The way the subtle color stripe plays out in the hat and the drape of the alpaca for the slouchiness of the hat is wonderful.  The alpaca also makes it knit up super cozy and warm.  This is a great pattern for a variety of 
Color Duo is a very soft blend of baby alpaca and merino that is colored in shades to create a very subtly stripe, making it great for scarves and hat.

This week our project inspiration is two hats by Okanagan Knit Co. who are three knit-loving girls in the Okanagan valley of BC who strive to produce knits inspired by the beautiful scenery that surrounds them.

The Ponderosa Hat is their newest design.  Knit out of DK weight, the pinecone stitch pattern on this slouchy hat is fun to work and easy to memorize.  As an added bonus, it looks great inside out as well!  It is best worked in a solid or tonal color.  Our sample is knit out of Cascade 220 Superwash.
