  • Morganite - Hat

    Format

    About Morganite

    A round of diamonds, getting smaller and smaller, flowing out of a line of twisted rib and upwards into a pompom. Twisted stitches standing out on a reverse stockinette fabric that lets the yarn shine. The Morganite hat is not only sure to become a wardrobe staple, it’s also a “just one more round” project, just the way we like it. Coupled with Moel View Yarn’s beautifully natural dyed yarn, we can’t wait to wear it all winter long.
