All this happened, more or less *
The idea for the Veris Hat was a joint effort with Helle, a good friend and the talented dyer behind TheDanishDyelot. Her beautiful colors inspired me to design a stylish, cozy hat with a matching set of mittens that are super fun to knit and a delight to wear.
The slip stitch pattern enhances almost every color combo you can think of, and the hat looks just as good in very distinct and contrasting colors as in something more ton-sur-ton.
Dream up your perfect color combo and go and enjoy yourself!
