Ever wonder what those beautiful names on yarn labels mean—words like Coopworth, Bluefaced Leicester, Perendale, and Rambouillet?
I wrote The Knitter's Book of Wool to tell their story, and it's on the shelves this week. I'd like to share a simple pattern from it with you. The Hill Country Hat uses a mere 120 yards of any bulky-weight yarn. It's a quick knit, a fun pattern repeat, and a great little unisex hat for fall. I'd love for you to try it with different kinds of wool, but you can use any fiber you'd like.
And, here's another pattern exclusive: Jennifer Hagan's Cuff-to-Cuff Pullover shows how you can keep kids warm with wool.
