Native Language Hat PDF
Lisa McFetridge's Native Language Hat is inspired by southwestern and Native American motifs. In this hat one color is used on only one round, so no amount is too small to be able to use. Put the balls in a circle by color and choose your favorites, no color is "off the table", but it looks best if you to try to stay with all brights, all pastels or all neutrals. It’s the main color that ties them all together. Knit in either Valley Yarns Northampton, Cascade 220 or both together, this hat is sure to be warm!
