There are several different yarns that you use. I just started one using Limbo Mexico to go with my favorite jacket. Here is what I have done so far.
I’ll take pictures as I go along to help you understand my directions. And I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Here are some yarns of similar weight that will also work with this pattern. I have also made this hat using much lighter weight yarn.
