Apres Ski, the perfect time to unwind. You tromp inside after the last run down the chilly slopes, and realize, as you cozy up to the fire, that the helmet has permanently creased your hair. The solution is your favorite hand knit cap. Hand knits offer a chic but warm touch of fashion, adding an individuality that can’t be beat. This chapeau, knit in MinnowMerino doubled, works up in a few short hours. You can be sporting a new favorite in no time.
100% extra fine superwash merino
MinnowMerino is a super-soft, machine-washable, worsted-weight yarn. The loose twist of this single-ply, extra-fine merino allows for quick knits that are cozy and lightweight and will keep you warm. The yarn is great for Jil’s kids designs, past and present, and it’s also wonderful for just about anything you’d like to make in a worsted-weight yarn. MinnowMerino comes in a 27 color palette that includes colors for both for adult and children’s garments.
