We Are Knitters Hat Review & Giveaway


I’m a fan of We Are Knitters. I love their cotton, but this wool BLOWS MY MIND.  Today I’d like to share their “Deja Vu Hat” kit with you from We Are Knitters and they’ve also kindly offered to do a giveaway! You can find all the details for the giveaway at the bottom of this post.  The name of that coupon code makes me giggle! You can see all of their kits HERE!

Let me start by saying, this wool is SOOOOO luxurious. First of all, you would never know that this is 100% wool with how soft it is to the touch. Second, the color choices will have you unable to narrow down a color because they are all so beautiful.  And third, it’s a lot of fun to get the kit in the mail with a cute little brown bag, a tag, knitting needles and even a little tapestry needle.  This hat was done in Salmon and you guys, I’ve tried to find a color similar to this at my local craft stores and have never seen it.  Isn’t it great?!

You may also use the coupon code WAKINASTITCH to receive 20% off of your purchase from We Are Knitters through February 14, 2017!  



The hat works up easily and quickly. If you know how to knit and purl, you will have no trouble making this hat. It’s also a great option if you’re short on time since it’s done on straight, large US size 19 (15mm) knitting needles.  The needles come with the kit and I found them to be really nice.  These were even better than the needles which I received with the previous kit for the seed stitch scarf from this past summer.  I chose the salmon color for this hat, but any of the color options would look really nice.  The wool care instructions say that the wool can be washed with cold water and mild soap and to lay flat to dry.  Easy enough!




It’s really a pleasure to work with this wool and I highly recommend it.  🙂
