February marks the launch of our first ever Yarn Culture pattern!  SO FÅR SO GOOD is a unisex, textured, slouchy hat with an extra warm folded ribbed brim.

The textured pattern looks different, but equally attractive, on each side, making the hat completely reversible. Knitted in Woolfolk FÅR, it is luxuriously soft to knit and to wear.  SO FÅR SO GOOD uses 2 skeins...
