The Barley Hat from Tin Can Knits is the fourth project in their Simple Collection, knit with 1 skein of our Urth Yarns Harvest or Monokrom Worsted to create a cozy, machine washable hat. This scrumptious, hand-dyed hat can be sized to fit a head circumference from 16-23” and can be knit as a slouchy or tight fighting beanie. Choose from naturally dyed, solid tones in our Harvest Worsted or vibrant, tonal shades in our Monokrom line.
Bonus: When you choose Urth Yarns you help plant a tree for a family in need with every skein purchased. Join the #knitoneplantone movement by knitting this Barley Hat from tincanknits.
