SQUISHY YUMMY BEAUTIFUL
LOCAL NEW ZEALAND YARNS
Black Cat Knitting Co. designed Brushstroke Hat to highlight BEAUT, combining two of my favorite stitches: brioche and herringbone. Using just one skein of 4ply held double, this hat is the perfect way to show off a special yarn with two beautiful and timeless texture stitches.
If you are new to either brioche or herringbone stitch, now is your chance to learn. This pattern gives detailed instructions and includes a link to a video tutorial which can give you a helpful visual aid.
This hat has quickly become my favorite go-to hat :)

Poetic, rich colour on sumptuous non-superwash New Zealand yarns: Merino, Corriedale, Merino-Cross, Romney, from the grower to the mill to the dyer - connect your final object back to it’s origin & incorporate the story of the yarn into your own. This is our definition of luxury.
Yarn is the best. It makes the stores who sell it, and the people who buy it happy. It’s sustainable, and supports hard working people in smaller communities trying to slow things down while the world speeds up. All around it’s an amazing, natural product.
Prosper Yarn is small, local, ethical, and socially minded. We use New Zealand grown and milled yarn bases. We do not support mulesing. We use as little fresh water as possible, and fully exhaust our locally mixed professional acid dyes.
Prosper does not use Super Wash yarn bases.
