Perfect gift for the knitter in your life. Or, treat yourself with a ready-to-knit project!
This kit comes complete with a PDF copy of accomplished pattern designer Sara Gresbach's beautiful colorwork pattern, the Lodgepole Hat, as well as two skeins of our light worsted weight Calypso yarn in your choice of colorways (colors shown: Honeycomb & Nautical Blue).
