Peberholm, by Friend of the Flock Emily Greene, is a graphic colorwork hat, worked in the round from the bottom-up. Designed as a companion pattern to the Saltholm sweater, Peberholm features a cleverly-constructed faced brim for a cozy fit and extra warmth around the ears. This pattern is written in four sizes to fit a wide range of heads, and includes instructions for three brim construction methods, so knitters can choose the option that best suits their personal knitting preferences. Peberholm uses just two colors of your favorite fingering-weight wool yarn — making this is a great pattern for using up leftovers from bigger projects!
A note: Peberholm is available as a digital download and a yarn+pattern bundle here at H+W.com, but 100% of pattern sales revenue goes directly to the designer, just as if you bought the pattern directly from their website or on Ravelry. We think this way, everybody wins: you get an easier, more straightforward experience as a consumer, our indie designer friends get to realize the maximum revenue from their work, and you get another great way to access new designs in our yarn outside of our pattern collections.
