This pattern was originally published as For Yarn’s Sake’s contribution to the 2018 Rose City Yarn Crawl, March 1 – 4, 2018 in Portland, Oregon. It is available for download individually or as part of the 2018 Collection: Waterways: 2018 Rose City Yarn Crawl Pattern Collection.

Thundering spray from massive falls along a waterfall trail loop. Sun-soaked old growth giants and majestic snow-capped mountain peaks. Crystal clear rapids contrasted by gentle river stretches, ideal for wading in with your fly-fishing pole. All hallmarks of the magnificent McKenzie River - one of Oregon’s true gems. And the inspiration behind our McKenzie Hat, designed exclusively for the 2018 Rose City Yarn Crawl.

Main Color - Spincycle Yarns Private Label (100% American Merino Wool, 50 grams / 170 yards); 1 skein

Contrast Color - Spincycle Yarns Dyed In the Wool (100% American Wool, 50 grams / 200 yards); 1 skein.

Shown in Tangled Up in Blue (CC) & Light Brown Solid (MC), Cataclysm (CC) & Light Brown Solid (MC), and Melancholia (CC) & Dark Brown Solid (MC).

If you choose to knit the brim using Private Label Solid (MC) rather than Dyed in the Wool (CC), you will need a second skein of Private Label Solid.
