Inspired by the rich tones and textures of the designers’ favorite date night destination, Valentine Distillery; Distill is a sophisticated beret style hat that is dressy enough to pair with a little black dress and heels, but cool enough to wear with jeans and a leather jacket. Specialty spike stitches emphasize variations in your yarn choice without getting lost in the mix. And a detailed video tutorial walks you through the process, so you can learn a new technique along the way. Look closely at the spike stitches and you will see an art-deco inspired trail of plumes climbing along the increase edges. The perfect added touch for this all weather accessory!


Special thanks to Indie Untangled and Life in the Longgrass for partnering with me and putting together the kits for the “Places We Knit” subscription club. The pattern was originally included in club members subscriptions.
