Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 404 – Song Cap

Hats are perfect in so many ways! They can be worn in any season as a stylish statement and when needed, to keep your head and ears warm. Being smaller projects they call for smaller amounts of yarn and are an easy way to try your hand at a new technique or two, such as knitting in the round on circulars or double points, or venturing into the world of colorwork. Hats can also be the perfect way to become acquainted with a new yarn and its characteristics.

This week's hat pattern is made using Song, an intimate blend of cotton and wool, with a silky smooth luxurious hand. With twelve sophisticated colors to choose from, we bet you can't make just one!

The wool and cotton fibers are blended before spinning then eight plies are twisted together resulting in a smooth, silken yarn with excellent stitch definition. Perfect for year round wear, whether cables, lace, colorwork or plain stockinette, Song does it all beautifully! Understated and elegant, Song is a yarn you will want to return to again and again.
