The Owen Hat Kit
The Owen Hat by Jill Zielinski is a showstopper knit in our exclusive-to-us Loops Luxe Chunky, an alpaca/silk blend that is soft as butter and keeps you toasty warm in those winter winds.
Quick Tip: By using the colors judiciously, one Owen Hat kit will make 2 hats! Just swap the colors as shown, and you can make a medium adult hat + a child hat. (To get gauge, Shelley used #5 and #7 needles throughout. Be sure to swatch and get your own gauge using the colorwork chart in the pattern.)
Your kit contains one skein each of Natural, Light Grey and Charcoal colorways, and your choice of Loops Blue or Perfectly Pink as your accent color.
The hat is knit on size US 3 (3.25mm) and US 5 (3.75mm) needles. The pattern is available on Ravelry.
