Staff Creations: Jules’ Hearts on Repeat Hat

hat1

Love is in the air, but a chill is in the air too!  Keep those ears warm this Valentine’s Day with a design from our very own Jules, Hearts on Repeat Hat.  We are giving away this pattern for free with the purchase of the yarn to make it — two skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash Aran or comparable aran weight yarn (you’ll need at least 200 yards total).

This pattern is compatible with any aran weight yarn, but wooly fibers really show off the colorwork.  We hope to see more people wearing their hearts on their head!  If you’re shopping with us online, please mention that you’d like the pattern for “Hearts on Repeat Hat” in the special instructions section at checkout.
