Cascade Spuntaneous

Gracing the cover of Knit Simple Winter 2017 is one of our all time favourites, Spuntaneous from Cascade. Spuntaneous is a super bulky, single-ply yarn that is buttery soft. Made with 100% extra fine merino wool, its design and texture will have you thinking cushy, warm comfort the minute you feel it. This BFF hat pattern is sure to become this season’s hottest accessory!


These stripey confections couldn’t be simpler. From the garter stitch band through the stocking stitch body, they are worked in the round on 10mm  (US 15) needles. Put a personal spin on the design by choosing the position, width, and sequence of the stripes.


These are the ultimate in last minute gift ideas! 2 balls + 2 nights = 2 amazing hats!! Stop by your LYS today and pick up your favourite colours in Spuntaneous to create your very own show stopper!
