Chilly weather calls for chunky hats! And boy oh boy, do I have a big cozy hat for you! This crochet hat is only 4 rows long! That is because it’s made with the giant, super bulky, big stitch merino wool from Mama Knows Luxury! This is the same yarn that is used for extreme hand/arm knitting which is the most traditional way to use this yarn. You can see an entire series on this HERE with beautiful photos and video tutorials.
Sarah from Mama Knows Luxury has the biggest and best selection of huge merino wool! I actually got a chance to meet Sarah when I was visiting Toronto for the Our Maker Life Knit and Crochet Meetup (you and read all about that HERE) and flipped through her big book of yarn samples – what a treat that was! Here is Sarah showing me an extreme knit sample!
