Hanley Falls Hat Using Blue Sky Fibers Eco Cashmere
For adventurous beginners and any fair isle fan, the Hanley Falls Hat provides a sweet journey into stranded colorwork. Though the lovely, four-color diamond motif looks intricate, you are only ever switching between two colors in a single row. Designed by Sara Cookson for Blue Sky Fibers’ Traveler Series, this topper is fairly simple and super cute!
Blue Sky Fibers Eco-Cashmere—a DK-weight blend of half-recycled and half-virgin cashmere—creates a Hanley Falls Hat with lush, lived-in softness. Nice and lofty, Eco-Cashmere knits up into a cozy fabric with lots of drape. Just what we love in a slightly slouchy hat!
We’ve grouped together two colorways of Eco-Cashmere—a cream with bright coral, navy blue, and golden yellow and a light grey with bright coral, navy blue, and golden yellow. We also offer the three brights separately, on hand-wound spool tags.
