From the designer, Mary Lou Egan:
"I had soooo much fun designing and making this hat. I pored over pictures of tigers. Did you know that a tiger’s stripes are like a human’s fingerprints? No two are identical. Now that makes knitting one of these babies easy. Don’t worry too much about the chart. You are imitating nature. It’s made with Malabrigo, one of my favorite yarns. Soft and luscious."
Experience Level: Advanced Beginner
Materials: Malabrigo Merino Worsted Weight (215 yds); 1 skein Sunset and 1 skein Black.
You may substitute any yarn that works at your gauge, but the variations of color from the kettle-dyed Malabrigo add to the tiger look. Malabrigo works up well at all three gauges listed in the pattern.
