The yarnstory:

Knit Star Jennifer Berg “dreamt up The Peaceful People Hat as I was heading to bed one night,” she says. “I was inspired by the swirls found on the pottery and jewelry designs of the Hopi Tribe who are referred to as The Peaceful People. Their reservations dot across the Southwest and are close to our Navajo Reservation but our tribes are very different. I made this piece to honor my neighbor tribe. The Peaceful People have artwork that is similar to Navajo designs but the twist and swirls are something that is a staple for them,” Jen added.

To create an extra-special exclusive kit for Jen’s design, we turned to Meg of Fairy Godmother Dyeworks. This kit is a lovely introduction to my Evolution yarn,” Meg shared.  The gradual flow of color from hue to hue is my signature dye style, honed over the last 17 years. 

The kit’s “Peace” gradient colorway evokes sand to sky, while the semisolid “Terracotta” is reminiscent of rock formations in the region and provides a natural contrast.

The yarn:

Your kit contains Fairy Godmother Dyeworks SW Merino DK in Glazed Semi-Solid and Evolution Gradient colorways. The pattern calls for size US 4 & 6 (3.5-4mm) needles. Our model knitter went up needle size on both needles to get gauge. It's always a good idea when doing colorwork to do your gauge swatch.

The pattern is available on Ravelry.
