Be An Ice-Cold Stunner in This Hot Handspun Hat Pattern
In Aspen you MUST be beautiful, and nothing says “I happen to be the coolest person here” like this chunky handspun hat pattern. Only you can’t buy this hat at Prada. You can only make it.
I designed the Aspen Ice Hat to capture the Bohemian, cooler-than-cool Aspen look that is so IN this winter. And people have been stopping me everywhere I go to tell me they love it.
As a special challenge, I designed the hat for handspun yarn.
The Aspen Ice Hat is an Easy Pattern for Handspun Yarn
This hat works great with Magnolia Handspun, but you can use Mango Moon Dreadlocks or Malabrigo Gruesa with this handspun hat pattern too.
The repeating lace pattern makes a spiral that looks fantastic with a lot of different of textures, colors and thicknesses.
The best thing is that this is a fast and easy knit hat pattern, which means you can make it as a present for your friend (maybe with some of that yarn they brought you back from a trip that you had no idea what to do with).
Looking For the Hat Pattern from Magnolia Handspun That Matches the Aspen Ice Cowl? This Is It.
Last year I published the Aspen Ice cowl, the first of my exclusive patterns for Magnolia Handspun.
Camilla, the owner and spinner of Magnolia Handspun, knit a chunky, slouchy hat to go with the cowl and published this photo.
Since then, we’ve been getting so many requests for “the hat that goes with the Aspen Ice cowl” that I decided to re-create the hat and publish the hat pattern so you could have it.

What a data of un-ambiguity andd preserveness of precious knowlerge on the topicc of unpredicted feelings.
I wish I could just put up with it for a gout in wrist little while, but you should start with lean cuts of meat.
Such incredible yarn colours. Great inspiration!
Thanks for visiting! Camilla is so great with color combinations.
Beautiful! I added ‘Free Range Chick’ on my favorites. Loved reading her blog. I would name this yarn “Aspen Sunset”. It’s just beautiful and reminded me of a fabulous sunset. Hope I win, I’ve never won anything in my life! Could I be so lucky…
I just handspun my first 2-ply with a drop spindle…I loved this Zen experience. I think the perfect name for your yarn would be….Kaleidoscope….Spin on!
Did some “like” action of this post (Your rock Liat), shared the article on Facebook checked out the Blog (You rock Camilla!!), Checked out Magnolia Hand Spun (You rock even more Camilla).
I would like to make a hat with the following colors:
Endless Summer – a mix of deep and vibrant reds, oranges, yellows with hints of purples and blues to mimic a summer sunset
Deep Space – Various shades of primarily black a bit of white and some subtle blues, yellows and reds mixed in
Caribbean Dream – go crazy…
Thanks for sharing the post, AJ! I love your yarn choices… can’t wait to see the hat when it’s done!
I Made it! And I love it. So quick and easy and BEAUTIFUL.
Yaaay! Will you link a photo of it to the Aspen Ice hat on Ravelry? I’d really like to see it! :D
I’m having a lot of trouble getting the pattern. I submit the information required, and then nothing happens. Where do I find the pattern after that? I’m a bit lost now… it should just come up somewhere at least! Am I supposed to do something different?
Pat, that’s really weird! I’m so sorry! I made a small change to the code – can you try it again and see if it works now?
That worked for me, thanks!
Wow,this is amazing giveaway! Lovely colors, thanks for the chance to win it. I faved you at etsy.
I’m so glad you are excited about this giveaway! I love to share my favorite yarns and online stores with my readers.
Love the beautiful colors in this yarn, my favorites. Posted on Camilla’s blog my name for this yarn “Sunsets & Snowdrifts”.
Thanks, Patty! That is a beautiful name.
I went to Camilla’s site and to Magnolia’s on Etsy. Love the yarns. Love the colours!
Judith, that’s great! Aren’t the yarns just dazzling – how she combines all the colors and it still looks great? I’m in awe.

Hey Lori, this is fantastic! Thanks so much for faving, suggesting, and sharing this post! I hope you love knitting the hat!
This is a post for TX Crochet Lover because she couldn’t get her comment to stick but she did post on KNITFreedom’s Facebook page. Thanks!
I did all of the choices! My name suggestion for name of that lovely yarn is – “Delectable”.
Ooh, I love it. Thanks Sheree!
The blog and ETSY sites are earmarked for me – and I love the names suggested here – Mardi Gras keeps occurring to me but then maybe I’m homesick!
What a fun name! Thank you!
Of course you can! That would be awesome!! :)
Great looking yarns on Etsy. Enable, enable, enable.
Haha, I know…. :) But her yarn is really remarkable, it’s so worth it…
I posted on Camilla’s blog. Whay not call such a heavenly yarn “Heaven’s Hands?”
Great suggestion, Rene! Thank you!
I think the yarn should be called Reggae because of the look of the yarn.
Cool, Mye, that’s a great name for this yarn!
I have added the Aspen Ice Hat to my favs on Ravelry, tweeted and now follow you on twitter, visited “free range chick” and “Twist & Twine” on the web. I think bubblegum dreams would be a good name for a yarn.
Jill, thanks so much for helping share the pattern everywhere! I love the yarn name.
I added Magnolia Handspun to my favorites on Etsy! (username is chiayibear)
Chia-Yi » Great! Thanks so much for joining in the giveaway.
Great pattern! I love the colors, too. I’m a beginner, and I very much enjoy your postings. Oh, I shared this link!!
Marcy » Marcy, I’m so glad you like my posts! I’m trying to make them really useful and easy-to-read. If you are a beginner, have you tried Magic Loop yet? You could knit the Basic Magic Loop hat and then you would be totally ready for the Aspen Ice hat. :)
Love the Magnolia yarn, saved Etsy to my favorites. I think a good name for the yarn would be “free range”.
Sheree » Me too! Thanks for going and checking out Magnolia Handspun yarn. Isn’t it just to die for? I don’t know if she realizes how talented she is….
Did you know she also did the photography for the Aspen Ice hat for this page and the pattern page? She’s amazing!!
I’ve favorite on Etsy and like your post on facebook :)
Genevieve » Thanks Genevieve, that’s fabulous!
I added both shops to my Etsy favourites and took a look at the blog. I also “liked” Magnolia handspun on facebook (which I almost never do), and spent a fair bit of time drooling over the beautiful yarns on both sites and trying to figure out how to budget to get some soon. I love the look of the handspun and would definitely love to knit some.
Wow, thanks for hooking up with Magnolia on FB and checking out all her yarns! Lots of people have been mentioning making this hat on a budget – I’ll see if I can find some options for other yarns too. Good luck in the giveaway!
Wow! Thanks for the wonderful pattern and introducing us to the beautiful yarn from Magnolia Handspun. I made several colors favorites on Etsy. And she lives only a little more than a 100 miles away! I’m in Montana (Missoula), and she’s just down the road in Columbia Falls on the way to Glacier National Park. She has lots of colorful inspiration all around her to help create her amazing yarns. Thanks again for sharing another creative source for yarn.
Hi Kitty – Oh, how lucky you are to be able to stop by Station 8 if you go on a road trip! I’m so glad you like her yarn and her site.
Can’t I just knit it and wear it?
How did I miss such a great looking Montana etsy shops? Both are now in my favorites.
That’s wonderful! Thanks, Marianna.
Almost forgot… a name suggestion, hmmmm…Art yarn reminds me of a couple of things-Montana weather (the old ‘if you don’t like it wait five minutes.’) And rodeo, bareback broncs in particular because horses are inherently beautiful and elegant, but the broncs are so untamed and unpredictable, like our weather, like art yarn.
Magnolia Handspun was one of the first products added to my list of favorites when I joined Etsy back in 2010. Imagine my surprise to find it artfully displayed at Station 8 in Columbia Falls last summer, and how thrilling it was to learn that it is made right here in Montana. Of course I bought a skein…and now your contest has me eyeing some plum colored sock yarn that I just found at Twist and Twine. Thanks for the link to a new source for sock yarn. And of course I’d love to win more of the handspun so I can make that hat, wow! So here’s my bid for TWO skeins of her glorious art yarn. Crossing my toes so my fingers are free to knit…
Thanks Camilla and Liat!
Melissa you are too funny! I love that you are crossing your toes so you can keep knitting. Thanks for buying some of Camilla’s yarn – I love that your knitting path keeps coming back to Magnolia Handspun! Her yarn really is remarkable. :)
I was glad you told us about Camilla’s new blog. I kept wondering why she hadn’t posted on her two previous blogs for such a long time! I love her yarn and can buy it locally but I would love to win some! I also “liked” her on facebook.
I know – apparently she’s been busy starting up Twist and Twine. I can’t wait to knit with some of that sock yarn!
I added the shops to my favs!
I visited Free Range Chik!
I shared this on Facebook!
I have already knit the hat and plan to make more! I would love to win some handspun!
Wow, Heather, that’s so awesome!! I’d love to see a photo of your hat on Ravelry – will you link it to the Aspen Ice hat on Ravelry so I can see it?
Mine is the other project listed on the page other than yours ;)
I love the hat. I think I might have to make 2! One in Tourmaline for Lindsey and one in Prairie Purple for Kayla. Love the Magnolia Handspun and the Free Range Chick blog. I will be watching both sites along with my fav KnitFreedom! Thanks Camilla & Liat. I hope to win the Delphinium yarn…..for me! ; ) Of course I “Liked” you on FB so all my friends will know. Thanks again!
Thanks so much for helping spread the word, Bobbi! I’d love to see your finished hats linked to the Aspen Ice hat on Ravelry so everyone can see pictures.
I visited your Free Range Chik Blog, read your profile and “Liked” your site on Facebook.
Thanks for a great site and giveaway!
Love the horses on your site. Teens are frustratingly awesome – my boys are now 21 and 19 so we are past most of those teen things. I work at the local high school with special needs teens. I wouldn’t have it any other way!!
Thanks so much for your comment. I can’t believe Camilla has four kids, a horse, and two yarn businesses. Talk about a superwoman!
Hi Marylou, I’m so glad you like Magnolia Handspun yarn! Good luck in the giveaway!
i visited the blog free range chik
susan krisch » Great, thanks for visiting!

I posted a name and comment on Free Range Chick’s blog! liked it on my facebook, and saved it to my queue on Ravelry.. TY for the pattern!
Judy, that’s so great! I hope you love knitting the pattern.
I posted on facebook and suggested “Spirulina” as a cool handspun name. Don’t have Etsy acct.
Jeanine » Thanks for your yarn name suggestion! I love it.
I marked Magnolia as a favorite in my Etsy. I don’t Twit or Facebook. Lovely yarn!
Thanks, Lisa, that’s perfect!
This. Is. Awesome!
I fav’ed her shop as chels580
I visited her blog and subscribed to her posts
Chelsea, thanks so much for doing all this! Went and visited your blog. Thanks for the enchilada sauce recipe!
I added Magnolia Handspun and Twist and Twine to my Etsy favorites, they look so yummy!
Krista J » Aren’t they gorgeous? I am in awe of her talent and her ability to combine so many colors well.
I picked several favorites in the Etsy shop, I suggested a name (Confetti), I faved the pattern on Ravelry and added it to my queue~! I don’t have a blog and I don’t do FB or twitter so I think that’s the best I can do! Please pick me!
Debbie thanks so much for doing all this! That is absolutely fabulous. I’m picking the winner randomly and since you commented your name will be in the the running… good luck!!
‘Like’ on FaceBook and I think Cotton Candy for a yummy name :0) — Just have to get some of this beautiful yarn …. !
I’m so glad you like the yarn! I want to make this hat for all of my friends but I’d probably clear out her whole store and then there wouldn’t be any Magnolia Handspun left for my readers!! :D
I just “liked” and commented on FB.
Added as a fav on etsy.
What about “butterfly kiss” or “persimmon” as color names?
Stunning yarns! Love the hat pattern and would love try it out!
Ooh, I love persimmons! Passing both your yarn name suggestions onto Camilla. If you make the hat, be sure to share a photo of it with us on Facebook or link to the Aspen Ice hat on Ravelry!
LOVED that yarn – have great memories of time with friends in ASPEN – GREAT HAT! Can’t wait to make that one – I faved magnolia on etsy! and I think a great name for the yarn would be “cotton candy” ! Thanks for the contest and all the great information!
Am I right about Aspen or what? I made a version of this hat for my sister out of super-bulky orange thick-and-thin, and people have been stopping her everywhere asking where she got it! I’m so glad you thought this post was useful and thanks for suggesting the yarn name!
Hi I fav’d it at etsy, gave a wool name. Jellybean!
Super-cute name, Alicia! Thanks!
Hi Liat….I “liked” on Facebook and just love the yarn! Where I live in Australia it’s not easy for me to source such beautiful yarns like this. Would be lovely to win! All the best, Jan x
Oh, it’s frustrating to be a knitter and not have great yarn nearby. I’ve got to order all mine on the Internet. Good luck in the giveaway!
I love the hat and the cowl. I faved Magnolia Handspun on Etsy, I liked on “facebook”.
I visited Free Range Chik Blog, but sorry couldn’t think of a cool yarn name.
I pinned the hat on Pinterest
I added the cowl and the hat to my Ravelry Queue
Hope I win!
Mary, thanks for pinning and sharing the hat! That’s so awesome.
I suggested the name Wilderspun on Camilla’s blog. What beautiful wool!
Kim – love the name!! Thanks!
Hi! I favorited the Magnolia Handspun Etsy store and I suggested a name on Free Range Chik. Thanks! (Oh, and I also pinned the hat photo on Pinterest to boot)
Terri, thanks for pinning! I didn’t even think of that.
Loved the article and pattern, I am suggesting this name for the yarn; “Unicorn Nation” as inspired by my husband’s comment looks like Unicorn Poo. LOL
lemonflower » Hahahahahahahaha!!!!
I faved both etsy stores.
Tammy Powley » Tammy, that’s great! Thanks so much.
I just favorited (? is that a word) her shop on etsy. And I couldn’t help myself and I bought a hank of yarn. So beautiful!
Thanks for bringing this designer to my attention.
Jessica, I’m so happy you like her yarn? It’s really stunning. Let us know what you make out of it!
I shared this post on my Facebook page and I’m currently knitting (and hoping to finish this weekend) with Mango Moon Dreadlocks in the Chiron colorway for a sample in my shop!
Jan, the hat I made with Kean is SOOOOOO soft!! It took exactly one skein, with enough for an enormous pompom. I didn’t get a pic (the gift recipient was moving around a lot with excitement) but the hat came out great. Will you link yours in Chiron to the Aspen Ice hat on Ravelry?
I went to Free Rang Chick and loved the blog. Hard to tear myself away to complete the treasure hunt. As I looked at the breathtaking colors, I immediately thought of
“Ocean Sunset” as all the colors were represented and so soothing… I added Twist & Twine and Magnolia Handspun to my favorites on Etsy. Good luck to everyone who would love to win this beautiful yarn!
Poppydoc » I love the yarn name!! So glad that my pattern and email led you on a fun treasure hunt today. That makes me so happy!
I just favorited and added it to my queue on Ravelry
Pam, that’s perfect! I’d love to see a photo when you knit the hat. :)
I added it to my favs on my etsy store: stitch this designs. beautiful yarn and design.
Oh, Tammy, thanks for linking to Magnolia Handspun from your Etsy store – way to work together! I love it.
I suggested “Delirious” on the blog, plus I downloaded the awesome pattern. I want this yarn! Please enter me in the contest.
Cindy, thanks for suggesting the yarn name! Your name is entered for the drawing. Good luck!!
Tweeted about this and left a suggestion for yarn names. Will also mention this giveaway on my own blog.
I tweeted about it and suggested a name for the yarn. Will also blog about the giveaway (but that’s not an entry :-[) so that’s two…
Lise, of course blogging about the giveaway counts!! I really appreciate it!!
Love them both. The yarn has to be wonderful to touch…. it sure looks it.
This is going to be my next projects. Great Christmas gifts………… thanks !
This is going to be a perfect Christmas hat. It’s SOOO fast. You will get addicted. I’ve made three already. Make sure to post photos on Ravelry!! :)
Thanks Liat! This was like a fun hunt following your steps… found so many other treasures on the way! Updated Etsy account and favorited Magnolia Homespun, went to blog and tried to post 6 times – ha! … Found I had to create a blog in order to post… posted the name ‘Flamingo’ – a gracious bird that can fly 60 kph! Get a load of that on the ski-slopes! :) Liked Magnolia on Facebook then queued and faved on Ravelry. Yum yum.. now to download and knit up with some delicious yarn.
Vangibabe- you’re so awesome!! I love that you enjoyed the treasure hunt this email took you on today. I hope you love knitting the hat! It is seriously addicting.
Thanks for the free pattern! I added Magnolia Homespun and Twist and Twine to my etsy favorites, drooled over some yarn but didn’t buy any, really enjoyed checking out Free Range Chik’s blog, and suggested Peacock as a name for a future yarn – maybe in blues, greens, and bronzes (my favorites)! I also shared this on FB. Now I’m crossing my fingers and hoping to win!!
Lois, that’s absolutely perfect! That’s exactly what Camilla needs – names for future yarns. Good luck in the giveaway!
Thanks for a great contest – I faved Aspen Ice Hat on Ravelry and added it to my queue. I also left a comment on Camilla’s blog and suggested the name “Mountain Meadow” because the handspun reminds me of a meadow full of wildflowers.
Teresa, I love the yarn name. Thanks for queuing the hat! I’d love to see photos there when it’s done. :)
Love the pattern and the handspun! I pinned you and Free Range Chik on Pinterest!
Chris, you’re the best!
I clicked a thumbs up (a facebook thingy?) and I tweeted it! I think. Yes! I see it! I did! (Slinks off to try once again to learn how this how social networking thing works…)
No yarn in budget but I will rummage around my stash.
Haha Celine you did it perfectly! I’d love to see photos when you finish the hat.
I suggested an name for yarn
Thank you so much for the pattern it is so lovely.
Tena you’re so welcome! I hope you have fun knitting it. :)
I love it~ “kitchen sink ” it has everything in it~
thanks liat &camilla~
Hi Monica my dear!! Thanks for the yarn name. Love you!!
I “shared” on Facebook what a great looking yarn this is! My fingers are crossed.
Thanks Pam! Good luck in the giveaway!
I added magnolia handspun to my favorites and I think the yarn should be called cotton candy. It’s yummy!
Great idea Lorrie, thanks!
I did it all, except for buying yarn. Not in the budget until next month. I’m so happy to know about these yarns, so that I can find them and buy them when the budget allows.
Deb, that’s so fabulous! Thank you. I know – I can’t make rash decisions about yarn either. But you’ll be able to go back and find her when you’re ready! Thanks so much for sharing, posting, and commenting.
This is what I did to win the yarn:
Added Twist and Twine to my Etsy favorites, and suggested a fun yarn name on Camilla’s blog.
Susanne, that’s perfect! Thanks so much and good luck!
Susanne – our first winner didn’t answer her email, and your name got chosen when I re-did the drawing! Congratulations!
rainbow wonder sounds nice….love the yarn…!!
Ann Kinderknecht » Thanks Ann!
fantasy, i think that’s an excellent name
Thanks, Laura, that’s a great name!
I did everything; facebooked it, tweeted it, faved the yarns & shops on etsy, faved the hat pattern on ravelry, suggested a name for a new yarn (love Camilla’s blog, by the way). The only thing I didn’t do was purchase some yarn, and not because I didn’t want to! Since I’ve added the yarn shops to my faves on etsy, I’ll be able to find them when I get some extra moolah! :-)
Yeah Renna! Thank you! That’s okay about buying yarn – they were all just options to choose from :) Besides, with your clout on Facebook, I bet like 100 of your friends will be stopping by here now. Thanks again!
Beautiful job on both the hat pattern and choice of yarn for it. This is most certainly a ‘must knit’ item!
I did the following:
1. Added Magnolia Handspun to my Etsy favorites
2. Added Twist & Twine to my favorites
3. Went to Free Range Chik blog and suggested a few names for handspun yarn
4. Shared post on Facebook
5. Added both patterns (hat & cowl) to Ravelry Queue
Wow, Julia, thanks so much! I hope you love knitting the hat – it’s so fast – I’ve already knitted three of them. You’re entered for the contest – good luck!
Why not call the yarn “Aspen Ice” or “Champagne Powder”? (I thought the blue one already has a name–Delphinium) If the blue is the contest, then “Blue Bird Day”. Favorited on Ravelry and added to my queue, posted on FB and Twitter and visited the blog.
Suzanne, I love the yarn names! Yes, Camilla just wanted yarn names in general, so these are perfect! I love the snow-inspired theme. Thanks!
I visited Camilla at Free Range Chick!
I recommend “Grape Crush”
Karen U » Sweet! Love the name.
I favorited Magnolia Handspun and Twist and Twine on Etsy!
Her yarn is gorgeous!
Count me in!
I added Magnolia Handspun AND Twist and Twine to my Etsy favorites. Also visited Camilla’s blog. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely yarn!
Geraldine, thanks for visiting and favoriting!
Re-Discovered an Etsy shop that I opened some time ago and forgot all about? I like to plan the future, long in advance of its arrival :-)
Anyways! Favorited “Magnolia & Twist & Twine”, while upgrading my Etsy webpage. Left a comment naming the yarn “Blown Away”, while noting the high quality skill that is self-evident in Camilla’s DK weight yarns.
Also: The above process got me to seriously think that maybe I don’t want to get back into creating my own homespun, but to focus my endeavor on learning the skills and purchasing the tools for machine and hand knitting quality garments using the luxury yarns created by another, like Camilla, whose artistry has already been sharpened by experience over time.
Shine ON* Katie
Kathleen Hill » Ooh, what a treasure to learn something about yourself as you went on this hunt around the Internet! Keep us updated on your garment-knitting plans!
Love the pattern, and love the yarn. Thank you
Thanks so much, Marjorie! I hope you have a great time knitting the hat.
I’ve been spinning with some Cotswold that I got for Christmas, but to tell you the truth. I really prefer yours. It makes me think of spring hikes in Flagstaff, where I used to live. Because of the this, I think the name “Spring Larkspur” is an appropriate name.
A truly inspired name. Thanks Catherine!
Visited both shops and favorited the Etsy shop, visited he other blog and downloaded the pattern
Anne, that’s fantastic! I’d love to see photos of the hat when it’s done!
Added Magnolia Handspun to my favorites!
Such a nice yarn, and a lovely hat. Regardless if I win, I think I will spin some yarn and start knitting. With my knitting skills it should be ready when next winter is here. I added Magnolia handspun to my etsy favorites and visited her blog, which I bookmarked so I can visit again.
My suggestion for a name is: Funky Blueberry
Cool yarn name! I love that Camilla has inspired you to start spinning.
Added both to my ETSY favorites…I think Mixed Berry Granita when I look at that fabulous yarn! I LOVE chunky!
It’s so hard to find a really good chunky yarn. Glad you like Magnolia Handspun’s!
Added both to my ETSY favorites…i think of Mixed Berry Granita when I look at that fabulous yarn!
I added Magnolia Handspun and Twist and Twine to my Etsy favorites and I went to Camilla’s blog and suggested the name Banana Blueberry Split. Now I just need to win this beautiful yarn! Thanks.
Linda D » You’re entered for the giveaway! Love the name suggestion.
Fun yarn – great hat! I’ve tweeted this, liked on Facebook, added Magnolia on Etsy and thought about a name :). “Winter Sherbet”
Mmmm… sherbet in the winter-time. Love it!
I added both Magnolia Handspun or Twist and Twine to my Etsy favorites
I suggested a name for that gorgeous yarn on Camilla’s blog. Now I just need to win :-) !
http://www.etsy.com/listing/74258528/handspun-handpainted-yarn love the suggestions think this would be a great one too!
Lizzi, thanks for this suggestion! I wonder how chunky the yarn is… the colors are fantastic!
Hey lizziemaggie – you won our drawing! Congratulations!
I favorited you on etsy! I like your yarn!
Yay! Thank you!
Went to Etsy and added Magnolia Handspun to my favorites. Wanted to suggest a name for the yarn (Bloomin’ Crazy) but couldn’t get the comments up on Camilla’s site to post.
That’s okay – I’ll let Camilla know your yarn suggestion. :) Thanks!
I had several names for Free Range Chik Spring Crocus and Spring Hyacinth. The yarns are as awesome as the area she lives in.
Nancy, those names are lovely! You are making me yearn for Spring…
Lovely hat, of course! Very cool. I checked out the Free Range Chick blog–thanks for that, great to have a new blog to follow! :)
You’re welcome! Glad that this contest led you to some new treasures along the way.
Live in Colorado and the hat is perfect. Can see why the Aspenites love it !!!! Can’t wait to knit one …………….
Karen Leib » Let’s see a photo when you are done! Glad you love it.
I’ve favorited some yarns in Etsy and so I was thinking on “Pinky promise” for the yarn. I also tweet the news on my TL (@miniingrid and @minimissplaced).
And I would try knitting the hat with some eskimo yarn (really like it!)
Ingrid » What’s eskimo yarn?? Sounds cool!
It’s a natural and free of dyes hand spun yarn from Magnolia Handspun ^_^
Oh, why yes it is! Wow, that’s gorgeous!
I went to free range chik—great pix for those of us who do not see much snow. Loved the hat its very chunky looking.
Thanks Sandy! The chunky yarn helps the hat be a super-fast knit.
Love the hat! Taylor swift as your model….how great! Twisty and Slopey would be a great name ! Thanks
Thanks Jan for the fun name suggestion!
“Twist and Shout” says it all!
Jennifer Sipe » Yeah!! How fun. Thanks!
I love the magnolia handspun yarn. I faved both shops in Etsy. Your Aspen Ice Hat pattern is perfect for the yarn. I added it to my queue in Ravelry. Now I just need to win the yarn!!!!
Thank you, Claire! Good luck in the giveaway!
I faved Magnolia and bought yarn from Twist. What fun!
Sweet! I’m so happy you found some treasures in this treasure hunt!
How about Purple Haze? That yarn is so beautiful!!!
I love the creativity of all these yarn names. Thanks!
Hi, love this yarn and pattern!
I went to her blog, suggested a yarn name, added it to my etsy favorites, and tweeted this post!
Thanks, Shauna! I really hope you like knitting the hat.
Hello! I love the yarn and the Aspen Ice hat pattern! I like Calliope because in Greek it means ‘having a beautiful voice’. This yarn speaks to me beautifully. Thanks for the chance to win.
Oooh, what a beautiful name… fantastic! Thanks, Billi.
Posted a link on FB. Would do more but I am NOT good on the computer.
No worries, Anne, you did perfect!
What a fun combo! This yarn should be called Through Thick and Thin.
Haha, I love it! Very clever…
A great name for the Magnolia handspun yarn would be ‘Circus”. It reminds of all the glitz and glitter of the Barnum & Bailey Circus.
