Voyageur Hat

Festival is almost over, but you can keep your Voyageur spirit going with this fun hat!! Using less than 1 skein of the new Rowan Pure Wool Worsted this hat knits up quick. And with 50 colours to choose from, there is a colour for everyone! You can download the pattern here or pick up a copy at the shop! This hat would also work great in any of our worsted weight yarns such as Cascade 220, Malabrigo Rios, Sweet Georgia Trinity Worsted and More! Here you can see it in action at a Voyageur pancake breakfast with its fantastic tassel. My son said that it was the best Voyageur hat there because his mom knit it and real Voyageurs probably had their moms knit their toques too!
