Techno Head


Techno Head hat worn with Twisted Circles Cowl

I wanted a hat that was very light and would reduce the amount of “hat head” I got when wearing it. Blue Sky Fibers ‘TECHNO’ is a perfect choice for hats. The alpaca provides incredible warmth and the air captured in the yarn ensures the hat is comfortable and light to wear. This quick knit project is a great last minute gift for that special person on your knitting list – whether or not they’re a “techno head.”
