The hat is worked in the round, starting with a broken rib brim, and incorporates seed-stitch and slipped-stitch patterns through the body and the crown.
**Venskab means friendship**:
Hurricane Hill Farm is a small-scale heritage farm in Rhode Island, raising Leicester Longwools, an endangered, historic sheep breed. The farm is run by my best friend and her partner. We have been friends for many, many years, but this is the first time we have been able to collaborate on a project. She is as passionate about her Danish heritage as she is about the beautiful farm-to-yarn they produce. The motifs in the Venskab Knits collection are primarily inspired by Vivian Høxbro’s wonderful book, “Traditional Danish Sweaters,” which explores the history of Danish “night sweaters” with their fabulous textured patterns and twisted stitches.
