When designer Imke von Nathusius completed their Supernova Cardigan last year, she used the remaining yarn to create the beautiful Nova Hat!
The Nova Hat pattern shares elements of the cardigan, such as slanted columns of broken rib and stockinette stitch as well as trims in plain stockinette stitch. This is a quick, yet beautiful project to knit in our Arranmore Light yarn, a soft authentic tweedy blend of Merino wool, cashmere and silk, made in Ireland.
Once you are familiar with the yarn and pattern, why not try the matching Supernova Cardigan!
