  • Tynd is the most wonderful yarn – softer than cashmere! I’ve used it for cowls and hats and it is simply divine!

  • Can a 73 year old get away with a slouch hat? Wish I was braver on the what-to-wear spectrum!

    • Yes, a 73-year old can, and it will look wonderful on you!!!

    • Try it! I just made a slightly slouchy hat for my 75-year old mother, who is undergoing chemo but was disliking the look of the close-fitting “chemo cap.” She wasn’t sure she could pull it off, but ended up really liking the looser fit and how it framed her face differently.

  • Question – In photos, the “slate” hat looks very blue, as in color 16. But the pattern calls for colors 31 and 32. Is either 31 or 32 bluer than it looks? Thanks!

    • Hey Pam! You aren’t the first to ask, I believe the colors are actually 32 and 33. It’s actually gray in person, so if you are looking to go blue, I’d choose either 16 or 11 instead of one of these.

  • Does the yarn have the speckled and solid already in the skein?
