Winter Trails

Every once in a while my timing is spot on.  There's nothing like a new hat for fresh snow.

Winter Trails.  We have a major winter storm bearing down on us, and this pattern seems appropriate for the occasion.

Winter Trails is full of dense, cushy cables creating a fabric loaded with texture.

This hat has plenty of give and can accommodate a variety of head sizes and shapes.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Clara, colorway Blue Me Away. Clara is a worsted weight, 100% Blue Faced Leicester yarn - soft and cozy.  This yarn comes in large, 250 gram skeins.  Winter Trails made only a dent in the skein, so I'm contemplating how I'll use the leftovers.  A new cowl sounds good right about now . . . 

This week I found my color inspiration in salt water taffy.

Pretty pastels.

Stephanie, this hat is beautiful! I'm resisting casting on right now, but will put it in my queue for sure.

Stay safe and warm!
