Caracol is splendidly warm and soft full of texture and just an all around cool yarn! In honour of the beautiful Priortochatella stellata (an endangered spiky snail from Cuba), is a lovely and unexpected hat. For this hat I added some slipped sts for a beautiful diamond shaped motif around the hat. Try with 1 or 2 colours of Caracol for an intriguing look! This is a super bulky hat worked in the round and from the bottom up. The pattern is written only and is easily adjusted with needle size or extra rounds.It works up super quick, knit one for you, a friend, or someone in need!
