Free pattern: Yakity Schmakity Hat in 3 sizes

Yakity Schmakity, free #crochet hat pattern in 3 sizes by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterI first encountered yak yarn at Vogue Knitting Live 2013, when I came across the mYak booth. (I later interviewed Paola from mYak about her company’s sustainable partnership with Tibetan yakherders here.)

This post contains affiliate links. The yarn for the sample was generously provided by SHOKAY.

Last year, I was introduced to another brand of yak yarn called SHOKAY. It is spun differently from mYak but both are very insulating.

Yak yarn is perfect for hats. It will definitely keep you cozy, and if you’re worried about price, a one-skein project is a great way to go.

Yakity Schmakity, free #crochet hat pattern in 3 sizes by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterThe Yakity Schmakity hat has a gentle texture which the yak yarn really picks up. You can also substitute another smooth yarn – especially one with great stitch definition!
