Jenny Gordy has designed some beautiful hat patterns. We wanted to introduce you to her designs as part of our holiday knit series because the sample that Theresa created for the shop is terrific. This is the Jul hat. Theresa created this with a single skein of the Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino that the pattern calls for. “This is the stuff yarn dreams are made of. A single-ply structure that allows your stitches to strut their stuff paired with a delicious, delicate halo that begs to be worn against your skin. It’s not fair, really. Heaven to knit and exquisite to wear? We’re powerless to resist this yarn’s charms!”We love how the softness of the yarn pairs with the slouchy comfort of the finished hat. It is a perfect project option for advanced beginners; giving you a chance to follow a simple stitch pattern while working in the round, decreasing and switching to double pointed needles as the circumference shrinks towards the top of the hat.Blue Sky has many beautiful colors to choose from and this DK yarn may just move to the top of your favorites list when you get a chance to work with it.
