Which Yarn for This Pattern?
Canyon Walk Hat is knit using worsted weight yarn, so there are a lot of choices.
For easy care, try HiKoo Simpliworsted. It's a blend of super wash merino, acrylic and nylon. A 100 gram skein has 140 yards so there won't be much left over when you use this yarn. The hat in the upper left is the denim marl in Simpliworsted.
For soft, we like HiKoo Simplinatural. That's the yarn that Wanda used when she wrote this hat pattern and knit the samples.
Simplinatural is natural fiber -- alpaca, merino and (mmm!) silk. The silk takes dye with a glisten and this yarn shows those highlights to a tee. Our price on this luxury yarn is $21.95 a skein, but when you combine a skein with another purchase, you can use our 25BY25 coupon code for 25% off an order that's $25 or more. Buy two skeins.

Your kayaking and hiking buddies will be glad that they have a knitter friend! Walkers, keep a Canyon Walk Hat in your pocket!
