pdf knitting pattern
Crisp fall hikes and cool evenings around the campfire call for a cozy set like this. Tolt is an outdoorsy hat that looks great on both men and women. It’s a perfect pattern for those new to color work, too.
The stranded color work pattern takes inspiration from the wending currents of the Tolt River, which was the site of an important salmon run that helped sustain the native Snoqualmie people.
The Tolt Hat and Mitts are now available for individual purchase. You can still get both patterns together if you buy the ebook from Tolt Yarn & Wool. The patterns are also available in print in Tolt's brick-and-mortar shop, in Carnation, Washington, along with the yarn to knit them.
