Designer Feature: Germantown Hats by Chiaki Hayashi

Our Germantown yarn is one of those go-to-for-anything yarns we keep reaching for over and over again. It’s ideal for plain, textured, and stranded knitting. While we’ve been busy knitting piles of textured swatches and sweaters, two new designs by Chiaki Hayashi popped up on Ravelry showcasing Germantown’s colorwork capabilities.

Chiaki Hayashi’s new Germantown Rolled Brim and Ribbed Brim Hats, feature a total of five beautiful shades of Germantown: Persian Red, Natural, Old Blue, Goldenrod, and Navy.

These adorable hats are ideal for the novice color work knitter - they teach knitting in the round with two colors, using straightforward motifs that are easy to follow.

Luckily, Germantown is as affordable as it is beautiful, and comes in skeins with ample yardage - enough to make several hats!

We hope to see colorful versions of Chiaki’s hats popping up on Instagram soon! #KWGermantown
