It was almost four years ago when Whitney wowed us with her Simple Pleasures Hat. There are a few projects from the Bee that every single person at the shop just HAS to make. This is one of them! As soon as fall breezes in, we reach for our Simple Pleasures Hats, grinning as we all arrive to work in our matching knitwear. It's just too good a pattern to pass up, a dream to knit and even better to wear!
For this season, we've knit up a fresh, cloud-like version in elegant creams and super soft cashmere. We started with two strands of Jade Sapphire's beautifully soft and cozy 2 Ply Cashmere. After a few inches of ribbing, we added a strand of Alchemy's mohair and silk Haiku. This gorgeous combination of hand dyed fibers makes for complex plays of pigment and texture with a subtle luster, a downy halo, and a spectacular depth of color!
