Tosh DK and the Clancy Hat

by Craig on January 27, 2011

Madelinetosh Tosh DK yarn is a squishy, soft superwash merino wool. It’s hand dyed to create solids with depth that don’t pool or flash. The combination of fiber and color results in a versatile yarn that’s delicate enough to wear next to the skin and hearty enough for everyday sweaters.

I knit this hat last fall. I hadn’t knit with Tosh DK before and wanted to make something other than a swatch. I loved the yarn and the hat, but somehow lost track of the hat. This winter we found the hat while cleaning the office. Kristine really liked it and asked me for the pattern. I went back and figured out what I’d done, and Clancy was born.

I’m not sure if Kristine ever knit one but I think Amber, who’s modeling it here, knit one for her husband. Both of them were happy with it.

Clancy is an easy, stylish knit and a fun way to try out Tosh DK.
