I love to knit a quick colorwork hat - not only is it engaging, but it just seems to fly off the needles. I picked Peavine by Gudrun Johnston for my Fall hat and I cannot wait to cast this on. I put together so many kits for this and hope you find one you like! You obviously don't have to knit this hat, but it's the one I am going to make, so feel free to grab a kit and knit your favorite 4 color hat along with me!
Tukuwool Fingering is light, airy and soft in its roughness. This 2-ply yarn has quite tight and vivacious twist but it becomes even and smooth after washing. Fingering works well with different gauges whether you want drapier or denser fabric.
It is well suited for various types of knits including looking beautiful in colorwork projects. One 50 g skein is plenty for a loose-shaped hat or basic mittens.
