Valley Yarns 344 Swirl Hat
The Swirl Hat features a surprisingly simple, naturally spiraling stitch pattern to create a warm hat that’s great for a man or woman. This hat is knit holding the yarn double throughout. In order 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.
