rollin' beret woolly wormhead

This week's project inspiration is an awesome beret from Woolly Wormhead called Rollin' Beret.  It offers a change from our usual beanies and slouchy hats; and it's fun because it takes advantage of stockinette rolling to create the brim.  It uses a skein of Gina Chunky  that self-stripes to keep things interesting!

plymouth gina chunky slip stitch hat

We all love colorful self-striping and self-patterning yarns because they make even the simplest of patterns have a lot of visual interest.  Gina Chunky is just that!  It is 100% wool that creates stripes as it knits up in beautiful color combinations.  It is great for accessories and will also felt nicely since it is not superwash.  Chunky yarn knits up quickly, and since it's still winter around here, there's time to make your own colorful creation.

Our store sample is a Slip Stitch hat with a really fun button detail.
