I'm attracted to Andrea Mowry designs for so many reasons; from the simplicity of some and the intricacies of others, each of her creations is unique and interesting.
She says of the Tincture hat, "I am always drawn to herringbone, and I love how easy it is to create this beautiful colorwork beanie utilizing Mosaic knitting! If you’ve never tried your hand at Mosaic knitting, this is a great introduction!! The only question left is to pompom or not to pompom?!" I knitted mine with Juniper Moon Farm Patagonia and added a detachable fun fur pom pom and loved it so much, we created kits. If you choose the pom pom option, click here to see the full range of colors.
The kit includes 2 hanks of Juniper Moon Farm Patagonia yarn ( 1 MC and 1 CC)in your color choices, KnittyGrittyYarnGirl project bag and pattern. List the color numbers in the NOTES at check out. One kit is enough yarn for 2 hats in opposite MC/CC.
