Julia G Gaiter & Slouchy Hat - FREE Pattern with Yarn Purchase!

Julia G Gaiter & Slouchy Hat
Civil War general and 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant is a favorite son of our home town, Galena.  His wife, Julia Dent Grant, is the namesake for my newest project, the Julia G Gaiter and Slouchy Hat set.  A fashionable woman who was part of one of the greatest social events of the 19th century - the White House wedding of her daughter, Nellie Grant, in 1874 - Julia surely would have appreciated the pretty, yet practical, Julia G Gaiter and Slouchy Hat set

And you will, too!  The Julia G Gaiter & Slouchy Hat will be the keep-by-the-door set you grab every time you go out! This simple design features a very knittable cable detail and is made from soft and yummy HiKoo Simplinatural yarn.  The pattern has enough cable detail to draw the eye without being too cabley.  It's easy enough for a novice and nice enough for an experienced knitter to make by the dozen.

The hat and gaiter look great together or separately, and this easy knit only takes one single skein to knit the hat and another single skein to knit the gaiter.

Bonus:  The pattern is free with the purchase HiKoo Simplinatural yarn!

Double Bonus:  For the month of February, all HiKoo yarn - including Simplinatural - is on sale at 20% off!

Simplinatural is an all natural yarn, a blend of soft baby alpaca, cozy merino wool and exotic mulberry silk.  It's a versatile yarn that's next-to-the-skin soft but also fantastic for outerwear.  We have 14 gorgeous saturated colors - it's hard to pick just one!

Choose your color - and enjoy!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
