New England Hat Kit with Mary Jane Mucklestone Pattern
New England Hat Kit Featuring Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Wildflower Cap
Wanting to offer a true New England winter hat knitting kit, we joined with Mary Jane Mucklestone of Maine to offer this special kit combining her Wildflower Cap pattern and our Gotland gray yarn. Each kit contains a hard copy of Mary Jane’s pattern and our Gotland yarn. I have over-dyed some of our pale gray yarn for the color work section and the pom pom on top of the hat. You will also receive a coupon code which will allow you to download the pattern into your ravelry account library for future reference.
I asked the mill to spin this yarn with a little extra wool so that it would make a cozy hat, perfect for fighting the cold New England winters. It knits up nicely on size 7 needles (or size needed to obtain the right gauge). The color work section is perfect for the person who wants to try their hand at knitting with two colors. Mary Jane includes a chart making it easy to follow and to create the lovely wildflower as you knit.
We just have a few kits left. The following colors are available:
