Balanced Rock Hat
"Recently I had the opportunity to visit the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. Beautiful! After leaving the park, I stopped by a local yarn shop and found this gorgeous yarn named after the Balanced Rock formation, and I knew that I couldn't pass it up! This hat design has an extended ribbing, so it can be worn as a slouchie hat or with a folded brim to wear as a beanie. The stitch pattern is designed to resemble the Balanced Rock, the most popular formation in the Garden of the Gods.
