The Design

"Absolutely adorable, perfectly practical."

Designed by Bobbi Intveld for Blue Sky Fibers, the Kensington Hat is a cozy, colorblocked topper with absolutely adorable earflaps. Perfectly practical, the flaps are sure to keep your ears warm all year long! I-cord edging extends down into long ties, which end in two wonderfully fluffy pompoms.

The Kensington Hat is knit in two colors of Blue Sky Fibers Suri Merino—a single-ply, worsted-weight blend of baby suri alpaca and fine merino—and one contrasting color of Brushed Suri—a fluffy malleable blend of baby suri alpaca, merino wool, and bamboo (used for the pompoms).

Blue Sky Fibers has created a convenient kit for the Kensington Hat. Each kit includes two regular-sized skeins of Suri Merino (each a different, tonal color), one mini skein of Suri Merino in a contrasting color, and two mini skeins of Brushed Suri in the same contrasting color, and the Kensington Hat pattern all tucked in a cardboard box.
