A Year of Giving - April - Cantata - Hackensack


For April, I made another hat in Cantata - a fun, multi-season yarn with a unique construction (a cotton cage with superwash wool blown inside). A heathery-denim look pairs well with great stitch definition in this soft, lightweight yarn. The stitch pattern is a swirling, slightly lacy rib that moves in a diagonal direction.
We will be giving away 3 kits of 2 skeins each (enough to make 2 hats) - 2 through Facebook and 1 here on the Blog. To enter on the Blog, comment with your favorite color of Cantata. The winner will be selected on Monday, April 22, 2019 at 3 pm PST.

  1. My favorite color? It's a toss-up between Lime and Navy, probably leaning more towards Navy.

  2. Love the textured look of the black for a hat. For a sweater, the teal.

  4. Choose a favorite color? Love the way they all look, but for expediency lets say Berry and Teal. But I would be happy with purple, ocean, gold, lime . . . need I say more?
