As described by designer Sharon/CityPurl, Sugar Cane is “an elegantly proportioned slouchy hat knitted in contrasting yarns to create a frosted-effect fabric, with a rolled brim and tidy crown decreases. A fast, easy knit with many possibilities to play with yarn combinations.”  

I love the luxurious simplicity of this hat. With this type of project, the beauty of the final product ultimately comes down to yarn choice.  Although I’m leaning towards knitting up a store sample with Filatura di Crosa Superior combined with Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light or SweetGeorgia Cashluxe Fine, I think this would also be stunning knit simply with a single strand of Metalico by Blue Sky Alpacas. Stay tuned…
