Penobscot Hat PDF
Hints of cables like waves lapping the shores off the coast of Maine adorn the Penobscot Hat from Swans Island. This easy to knit hat is a great introduction to cables; it uses two complementary strands of Swans Island Natural Colors Collection in fingering weight to create a beautiful heathered finished fabric. The natural dyeing processes Swans Island uses for these yarns produce organic, earthy colors reminiscent of the plants those colors came from.
