Project of the Month: Chanticleer Hat

Put some colour into your wardrobe with this stunning colourwork tam! The Chanticleer is the perfect slouchy hat for all reasons and all seasons.

Our March/April project comes to you from local Lower Mainland designer Caitlin Shepherd of Plucky Pigeon Knits. Caitlin brings together locally-inspired fair-isle elements with wonderfully East Van-symbolic such as pigeons and bicycles, to create beautiful garments made with love.

This stranded knit hat is worked bottom up with repeating colourwork and straightforward decreases at the crown. The original pattern is a seven-colours piece — a  PERFECT project for using up yarn stash leftovers and lonely skeins — and together with Plucky Pigeons we have reworked the piece to create an affordable 4-colour kit of non-superwash natural wools from Baa Ram Ewe and Briggs and Little for only $15.95! The kit is available in two colourways — Moody and Prime.



We are a great supporter of Caitlin and her designs, and we hope you love her work as much as we do!
