Ohio Star

Ohio Star was inspired by the traditional quilt block of the same name. Meant to be the coziest of toques, the big fisherman’s rib brim is knit to be extra long for folding up to keep ears warm during chilly winter days.

The yardage indicated includes the larger amount of Colour 1 required to knit a large brim, if you’d like a smaller brim, you’ll need closer to the yardage denoted in Colour 2.

Ohio Star is part of Changing Light, an ebook of five stranded colourwork patterns.
