The cable pattern of Winter Trails weaves through itself and is very fun to work up. Also.. the entire project knits up quickly with a worsted weight yarn. The end result is a squishy, cozy, elegant hat, perfect for a cold winter's day.
For the hat pictured, I chose The Fibre Company Organik yarn in Arctic Tundra. What a fabulous yarn this is!
This is my first time working with it, and the texture of this yarn is amazing.
Soft, slightly shiny, slight halo.. gorgeous.
