Soft Donegal

The Soft Donegal is back! I know it looks like it's going to be rustic and scratchy (which apparently not everyone loves), but it is so buttery. The colors are rich and each of these lovely skeins is over 200 yards of Aran weight yarn. This yarn is ideal for cables and color work, but it's also perfect in plain and simple stockinette.
We used it to knit up our Heathcliff Hat. I love the ribbing and the structure of this hat. The brim can be folded over for more of a skullcap look, too. This pattern is available for sale on Ravelry as part of our first Close Knit Collection from the fall, A Warm Welcome. More on these collections soon!
