You know that single skein of yarn in your stash that’s made of luxurious fibers (cashmere, alpaca, qiviut, yak down, angora…)? It’s calling your name, but whatever will you knit with it? This hat lets all the gorgeous qualities of those luxury yarns shine.
Knit with just one skein of a sportweight yarn, this hat’s pleasantly nubbly texture is simple to work and shows off either the fiber’s gorgeous natural color or the depth of the hand-dyed color.
The styling suits both men and women. In fact, I’ve named the hat Aftershave because I originally knit it with my husband in mind. He shaves his head completely, and I wanted him to have a luxuriously soft hat to warm his smooth pate just after shaving.
