Lorah Hat and Cowl Kit, ready to ship

Lorah Hat and Cowl Kit

We knit up this hat and cowl set in our Driftless DK Wisconsin-milled and -sourced Targhee/Rambouillet/Alpaca blend. All kits use a pairing of our Creamy Sheep undyed Driftless DK with one of our exclusively dyed colorways. If you'd like to put your own combination together, find our Driftless DK listing here.

"Named after the German name meaning laurel tree, Lorah Hat and Cowl feature a modern colourwork motif that is reminiscent of a forest fading into a field of flowers. Available in three hat sizes with a matching cowl, the pattern offers a satisfying knit as the set grows quickly on your needles and culminates in topping the hat with a colourful pom-pom. Choose two contrasting skeins of DK yarn or make a stylish ombre version by pairing a solid colour with a favorite gradient set for a unique accessory."--from the designer
