This Heartful Hat knitting kit has been developed to ease the burden of yarn selection! A Fairisle style pattern usually requires careful color selection, often purchasing multiple yarns and swatching for sufficient color contrast. When that doesn't work out, you're back to the store to buy more yarn when all you wanted to do was knit a simple hat pattern.
But with this kit, the heavy lifting has been done for you!
The Heartful Hat kit contains worsted weight yarn which makes for a faster finish than traditional fingering weight yarn. Speaking of traditional Fairisle, this kit contains 100% wool yarn which is the best choice for colorwork knitting projects.
All the decisions have been made for you so you can just sit and enjoy your project! Have your needles on hand and be ready to knit as soon as your package arrives. It won't be long before your new hat is ready to show off!
