Yarn Crawl Kit: Breckenridge Hat!

Breckenridge Hat

In celebration of the Second Annual Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl, The Knitting Nest is proud to offer these Breckenridge Hat kits! These kits feature Blue Sky Fibers’ 100% Highland Wool in two different colorways: the original colors (Loon Lake and the neutral bundle) and a special Tahoe version, created by Lauren Zebo, the owner of The Knitting Nest! The Tahoe colors were selected to resemble the beauty of Lake Tahoe and its surrounding mountains under a sunset sky. For the main color, you can select either Driftwood (pictured) or the original Loon Lake blue. This beginner fair isle project is a perfect way to transition to fall weather, and would also make a great gift!

Each kit includes the yarn (one hank and one bundle), the pattern and an adorable Blue Sky Fibers project bag. Both colorways are also available as crochet patterns! During the Yarn Crawl, these kits are available at the special price of $22.50 (normally $25.00). Buy your Breckenridge Hat kits here!
