12 Knits to Gift: Circuitry Hat
For the friends with the Humboldt County spirit
#7 of our 12 knits series is a quick 1 skein project knit up with the locally sourced and dyed Lost Coast Aran Weight Yarn. The Circuitry Hat is a great unisex design that anyone will love. The stitch pattern is simple, but simultaneously interesting and fun to knit.
If you haven't heard of our Lost Coast Yarns yet, allow me to introduce you! This line of yarn is all natural, hand dyed, farmstead yarn. The wool used is from a family owned ranch in southern Humboldt County, and Amanda (the talent behind Lost Coast Yarns) selectively hand picks the fleeces to be used. Once the locally sourced wool is spun, she then hand dyes it with all natural and organic materials-- several of which were also locally harvested and collected!
The Circuitry hat's pattern essentially just alternates horizontal and vertical ribbing, which results in this playful exaggerated basket weave design. Even though we've sold out of the Six Rivers colorway shown in our sample, there are still some other fantastic colors left. There's the Natural white, Grass Fed Butter which is a yellow dyed with scotchbroom, Pacific Blue dyed with Indigo, Sunrise dyed with Madder Root, and my personal favorite- Walnut Hull (which, you know, was dyed with Walnut hulls).
