Appalachia is a stranded color work hat designed to show off variegated sock yarn. While the example shows yarn with long color repeats, yarn with short color repeats, or another solid color would look just as good. The pattern is fairly easy to adjust for different yarn weights as well.
Knitting: 27sts/31rows = 4x4in/10x10 cm stockinette with size 3/ 3.25mm needles.
I taught myself to knit in 2005, crochet in 2006 and spin in 2010. It seems I have a habit of developing hobbies.
Fiber truly is a passion. I've worked at a wool mill, done knitting for a farmers market and currently work at a yarn shop. And like everyone else, I'm working on a book. But I figure anyone can start a book, the only thing that matters is that I finish mine.
