Hand Dyed Yarn from Pine and Sparrow Fiber Co.

This pattern was designed to feature yarn dyed by Natalie at Pine & Sparrow Fiber Co. and is the newest addition to my collection of one-skein hand-dyed crochet patterns. The colorway I used was ‘Les Fauves’, and I am in LOVE with how this yarn worked up. It includes deep teals, blues and greens with a few brighter pops of light green sprinkled in.

When I was in college, I studied in Costa Rica where we visited the Monteverde cloud forest. The deep and rich colors of this yarn reminded me of walking along the bridges in the forest canopy - hence the name! Sticking with the ‘rainforest’ feel, I added a brown faux fur pom on top from ThreadHead Knits Co. and the combination is just perfect.

Bobbles and Filet Crochet

Many of you have told me that you crochet hats all year round. I specifically saved this yarn for spring time because the greens and blues remind me of all things outside and nature. I paired this yarn with a light, but textured stitch pattern, thinking it would make a perfect early spring/late fall slouchy hat. I’m not the only one who changes their hats by the month, right?!

No Hand-Dyed Yarn in Your Stash?

Now I know that hand-dyed yarn isn’t always the easiest to come by, so definitely feed free to use any yarn you have in your stash for this hat! BUT if you are just dying (hehehe) to try some hand dyed yarn of your own be sure to check out all of Natalies’s yarn in her shop. There are so many different colorways that I want to add to my stash - it was hard to pick just one! ‘Bifrost’ will likely be making it’s way into my collection in the near future ;)
