A Year of Giving - March - Anchor Bay - Pannonica Slouch

For March, I made a lacy slouch in Anchor Bay, one of my favorite yarns. It is an ultra-soft and versatile blend of Superwash Merino and Cotton that is fabulous for a variety of projects - from babies to adults in both knit and crochet. We will be giving away 3 kits of 2 skeins each (enough to make at least 2 hats per kit) - 2 through the Cascade Yarns Facebook page and 1 through the blog. To enter on the blog, comment with your favorite spring knitting project. The winners will be drawn at 3 pm PST on Thursday, March 21, 2019.

  25. I like to knit hats year round, because they are portable, small enough that I don't get bored with a pattern, useful, giftable, and usually only need one skein, unless I am doing colorwork :)

  27. Love this hat. I ordered Anchor Bay to make it and the yarn is fabulous. Question - on Row 4 of "start design" - should it be K2Tog, YO, K4 rather than K5?

    1. I believe there is an error in row four of the written directions. It should read K2tog, YO, K4 not K5
