Swimming in Colors Hat



by Kirsten Kapur 

After creating the patterns for the Vibrant Connections Collection, I found myself with delightful scraps of colorful cashmere and baby yak leftovers. It was all much too beautiful and precious to throw away. Swimming in Colors was created to use up those bits and bobs of yarns that are too wonderful to get rid of.

With this pattern you can knit 2/3 hats by just changing the MC

Each kit contains the yarn you will need to complete your project. This pattern is available as part of the Vibrant Connections capsule.

Note: on our baby yak colors, we only dye on the natural basis, no bleaching or decoloring. Each color will vary from season to season depending on the shade of the natural fibers, making it at times darker and at times lighter. This is the beauty of working with natural fibers and therefore the shade of the sample you see photographed here, might not always correspond to the shade we have in stock or at your local LYS.
