Lana Grande - In the Groove Hat

Lana Grande is a bulky wool that works up quickly with great stitch definition. Lofty and durable, it works into a warm, squishy fabric. In the fall, it is easy to be drawn to chunky wools for that quick gratification that comes with finishing a project. I couldn't resist making a quick hat with a simple, easy to remember stitch pattern.

  1. It looks like it is started with a k2, p2 rib instead of a k1, p1 rib. Great pattern. Going to cast on this morning!
