It’s easier than it looks, because the yarn does it all.

Neighborhood Fiber Company’s Suri Loft is a luxurious blend of suri alpaca, merino, and silk. When the posh fuzz is applied to a classic beanie and a simple 2 x 2 stranded colorwork pattern, the result is a softly blurred checkerboard hat.

A truly special hat to give or keep all to yourself.
