Nancy Bates has published a mesmerizing book of hat patterns called Knitting the National Parks. We have assembled kits of a few of the Colorado parks so you have everything you need to make your favorite park come to life in hat form! Books are available for purchase at Lambshoppe if you are interested in making more of these stunning hats, so come on in to check them out!
This kit includes the pattern and yarn to make the Great Sand Dunes National Park hat, as well as a little, leather tag so everyone will be able to identify it. The hat is knit in stranded colorwork and stockinette stitch with an easy-to-follow chart. As you knit, you'll make your way across the grasses of the San Luis valley, to shrubs and trees and then to the tallest sand dunes in North America. Finally you'll knit the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and clear blue skies that make this park such a unique wonder. Enjoy the adventure of knitting this national park and Colorado treasure!
We have stocked the Great Sand Dunes National Park Hat kit with Woolstok Worsted by Blue Sky Yarns in the 6 colors you will need to knit this hat. Woolstok Worsted is a two-ply yarn made from the highest quality Peruvian Highland sheep.
