Anchor Steam Hat Kit
At Verb, we love working with Thea Colman of BabyCocktails. She always designs fun, clever patterns which are easy yet never boring to knit - like this new design - Anchor Steam.
A few words from Thea about Anchor Steam:
"I love a deep ribbing on my hats, but I often find that I fold it back at the nape of my neck for the perfect amount of slouch, so in this design I decided to play with short rows on the ribbing and make a hat that would slouch exactly as I want it to without any adjustments.
With that in mind, the ribbing on Anchor Steam is knit so the forehead is deeper and the back of the neck is shallower, allowing the fabric to naturally fall back as needed. Featuring a bit of simple colorwork to keep things interesting, and knit up in Pioneer, which is a beautiful, soft merino from A Verb For Keeping Warm, this is a quick, satisfying knit. Plus, it’s always fun to mix Kristine Vejar’s beautiful hand dyed colors! Her soft shades are just perfect for an early Fall knit – and a hat is just the right size (of project) for a car ride or day at the beach."
We've put together kits featuring the yarn (Pioneer) used in Anchor Steam. For her hat, Thea used Pacific Sailor as the main color, and Tree Fort as the accent color. We've included a few other pairings of yarn and color that we thought would make other great options. In addition to Pioneer, we have another beautiful California farm-yarn: Range, which would also work well in Anchor Steam.
