Winter Field Hat Using Rowan Felted Tweed
Adorably bold and playfully graphic, the Winter Field Hat is colorblocking at its most fun. Designed by Dee Hardwicke for Rowan Seasonal Palette: Autumn Winter 2019, this cute beanie is knit then seamed. Four different colors are arranged in a variety of cheerful blocks and stripes, using the clever intarsia technique. Add a pom-pom for a jubilant burst of color!
The Winter Field Hat is knit in Rowan Felted Tweed, a warm, woolly favorite. This fiber is on the finer side of DK-weight and blends merino wool with alpaca and viscose. As a result, it has softness and spring, drape and luster—and beautiful color options! In fact, for the Seasonal Palette collection, Dee Harwicke has composed a palette of eight colors inspired by the Welsh countryside and her watercolor paintings.
One size: 20 3/4"/53cm finished circumference.
4 skeins Rowan Felted Tweed (191yds/175m each); 1 skein each of 4 colors.
