Micah was inspired out of a pile of gorgeous yarn my husband (Caleb Micah) gave me as the best gift ever. I originally designed this hat using four different colors of lace weight cashmere held double, creating a beautiful marled effect. I have since adapted the pattern using Hedgehog Fibres Sock showing the versatility of the design. The hand dyed speckled fiber gives Micah new life and endless possibilities.
The Micah Hat is constructed brim up, with a folded brim. The pattern uses fair isle or stranded colorwork complete with a color chart.
