Avita Hat

We love a little holiday sparkle and we love this little beanie pattern we designed to showcase the teensy bit of sparkle sprinkled through Avita yarn.  Alas, it's nearly impossible to capture the sparkle in a photo, but trust us - there's sparkle in this hat!

Avita is a lighter-than-air yarn that has a core of shiny sparkling Lurex braided with nylon for strength. The flickering core floats inside a fluffy halo of baby Alpaca that's next-to-skin soft. The lighter shades host a more subtle sparkle experience while the darker shades have a deeper contrast for a glimmering core. We worked up a quick, twisted rib cap and topped it with one of the Big Bad Wool 6" faux poms. We're thinking this one would be an excellent project for your holiday gift-knitting list, or heck, just go ahead and make yourself one.
