Valley Yarns 344 Swirl Hat
The Swirl Hat combines a surprisingly simple, naturally spiraling stitch pattern with the rich colors of BFL Fingering Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer to create a warm, earth-toned hat that’s great for a man or woman. Hold two strands of yarn together throughout. Note - to hold 2 strands together from one skein, we recommend winding the skein into a center-pull ball and pulling from both the inside and the outside of the ball.
