It’s easier than it looks, because the yarn does it all.

When the posh fuzz of Neighborhood Fiber Company’s Suri Loft, a luxurious blend of suri alpaca, merino, and silk, is applied to a classic beanie and a simple 2 x 2 stranded colorwork pattern, the result is a softly blurred checkerboard hat.

A truly special hat for gifting or keeping all to yourself.
