Staple Stripes Hat Kit
If you had to pick a handknit wardrobe staple, what would it be? By now, you’ve certainly heard of a capsule wardrobe–a wardrobe comprised of versatile, quality pieces that look good alone and together; they’re the building blocks you reach for every time you get dressed. (The white t-shirt, the chambray shirt, the perfect jeans + wedge sandals are a good place to start.) Sure, you can add pieces every season (that’s where the speckled shawls come in–thank you, Stephen West!) but the essence of the capsule wardrobe are the fundamentals and foundation pieces that are classic, season after season, made well and make you look like a million bucks.
Insert the Basic Slouch Hat. For knitters, is there a more basic wardrobe staple than a hat? Chilly October morning? Throw on a hat. Taking the pup for his evening walk? Throw on a hat. Need to disguise your less-than-restful-night when you’re on school drop-off duty in the morning? Throw on a hat. We’re especially excited about this one, as it works for both women and men. (Cross another person off your list!) It’s simple, it’s luxurious (hint: it’s the cashmere!) and we can’t imagine a more fitting yarn to knit the quintessential hat than YOTH Yarns Big Sister. Sturdy yet luxurious, YOTH Yarns are lovingly spun and dyed in the USA. Run by our dear friend Veronika with the help of her entire family, the company aims for quality, transparency and ethical sourcing in everything they do. We are proud to be one of YOTH’s original stockists and proud to represent their brand in the Midwest.
Each kit will make one unisex adult hat and includes an easy-to-read pattern and a 1/2 skein each of two colors of YOTH Yarns Big Sister, a dk-weight blend of superwash Merino, cashmere and nylon. (You know us well enough by now to know we can’t get enough stripes around here!)
Our sample is shown in Sea Salt + Kale.
**SEA SALT IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK AND WILL BE HERE BY THE END OF THE YEAR.
