We’ve put together some kits for Shibui’s sumptuous Slouchy Toque, minimistically named “Mix no. 6.” The creatives at Shibui are big on blending, combining, and experimenting with their yarns. This particular hat combines their delicious Baby Alpaca DK with the soft & luminous Silk Cloud, to form a soft fabric with drape, warmth, and a lovely depth of colour + texture.
- 1 skein Shibui Baby Alpaca DK
- 1 skein Shibui Silk Cloud
- clear zipper project bag
- currently available in Nude (pink, see below), Ivory + Graphite
Kit does not contain knitting needles or other notions required: 3.75mm-16″ circular needles, 4.5mm-16″ circular + double pointed needles, stitch marker, darning needle.
We made our adult sized sample to the pattern directions and used less than half of the yarn. One kit should furnish 2 medium sized slouchy hats (21-22″ head), or one large slouchy hat (23-24″) and one child sized hat. You can see our project notes on Ravelry.
