The eye-catching Scandinavian-style motifs of the Galloway Cardigan have been revisited in the Galloway Hat, knit in Peerie for colorwork that simply sings. Peerie’s worsted-spun construction results in boldly and brightly defined colorwork and a soft yet strong fabric that will wear well on many an adventure. Enjoy choosing your four-color palette unreservedly — the rounds of the chart only use two colors at once! And with two lengths, two brim styles, optional pom-poms, and 45 colors of Peerie at your fingertips, you can think up nearly limitless combinations for every member of the family.
