This week’s free pattern highlight is Equisetum by Po Lena, a gorgeous lightweight winter hat. Warmth and style without the bulk. Garter stitch and cables lend beautiful texture and the slightly slouchy look gives it an undeniably modern look.  We think Equisetum would be lovely knit with Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino (see colours and yarn details below) and would make a perfect gift. It may only be August but experience has taught that it is never too early to start your holiday knitting!

Suri Merino is a gorgeous single-ply blend of baby suri alpaca and merino which yields beautiful stitch definition and a delicate halo. And to say it is soft would be an understatement.

5-6 stitches per inch / 3.75-4.5 mm / 100 grams / 164 yards/149 meters

We currently have 17 colours in stock.
