When Chasing Rabbits Fiber Co. hopped across our radar screen, we jumped at the chance to have Dawn dye 4-ply Merinolux Aran for us. Each color is more jaw-dropping than the next.
And Woolly Wormhead's Ruschia hat packs a punch with its cushy garter stitch and slipped stitch accents. We see more than one of these being added to our gift list! Just one skein and size 7 needles are all you'll need for most sizes (the largest 23" hat size will need a second skein). The pattern is available for purchase on ravelry.com.
Fiber: 100% Superwash Deluxe Merino Wool Weight/Length: 100 grams, 182 yards Gauge/Needle Size: 16-18 sts = 4 inches on US 7-9 needles Care: Hand wash gently, lay flat to dry.
