"Encaustico" Hat Knitting Kit

WOW! This is a stunning hat with great use of color and a comfy, stylish slouchy shape.  The hat matches the Encaustico mittens.  Both hat and mittens were designed for us by Varian Brandon.  Varian specializes in gorgeous stranded colorwork.  Her patterns are detailed and well written with good pattern support so fear not! - you CAN do this!

The hat is constructed from the bottom up starting at the cuff, with a 5" lining on the inside of the hat.  The motifs found in both hat and mittens are reminiscent of tiles from Ancient Greece.

Varian Brandon has been a design collaborator with Mountain Meadow Wool for many years. We met her at a TNNA tradeshow (The National Needle Arts) and she became a friend very quickly.

Varian is very talented and meticulous in her design work. We love how she uses color in unexpected ways and the story she tells with many of her colorwork patterns.

Varian makes her home in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains and this year we welcomed her to our Rocky Mountains for a great visit. Over the years she has created beautiful items for us and we continue to work on more.

The Encaustico Hat was done at the same time as the Encaustico Mittens.  The hat was first released to our Legacy Yarn Club.  Cumulativa Cowl is another of Varian's designs to check out.

I visited your mill in late September and purchased your Saratoga fingering yarn to make this purse. I’m so glad I
discovered your mill in Buffalo as I am originally from Wyoming and it’s so special to knit with yarn that is sourced and milled there.

I love your Legacy club and look forward to some fun projects and great yarns to discover.
