Finished Koolhaas in Bellingen

November 3, 2008

Bellingen knits to a classic worsted heavy weight gauge, making it a perfect choice for hats like Koolhaas (pattern available here).  Koolhaas requires only one skein of Bellingen to make the largest size, and the yarn for this hat was kettle dyed with chocolate brown food colouring and citric acid. The yarn has a a bouncy texture, making the cables really ‘pop”.
