WanderKnit - Patagonia (PRE-ORDER)

Southern Andes Cap

The Southern Andes are popular among independent, self-sufficient hikers, with easy-to-climb volcanoes, arid deserts, and some of the largest ice fields on earth. With a bit of stranded knitting and lots of texture, this hat inspired by the Southern Andes in heathered Highland Lux by HiKoo® is guaranteed to bring this diverse mountain-scape to life.

The landscape’s foundation begins with ribbing, a series of twisted stitches, and various knits and purls. The peaks are then formed with subtle stranded colorwork using two contrasting colors. The Andean Highland Wool and Kid Mohair blend of Highland Lux is well suited to keep you warm and comfortable on a neighborhood walk, or a hike through the tundra.

Grey Glacier Bandana Cowl

This cozy two-toned bandana cowl features dots, ridges, and swooping stitches resonant of expansive Patagonian glaciers. The jagged landscape of these massive glaciers are reflected in the textural patterns and alternating tones of heathered Highland Lux by HiKoo®. Warm, insulating, and remarkably light, Highland Lux has the rustic charm of Andean Highland Wool, and a touch of luxury with a hint of Kid Mohair.

This piece is knit flat with a section seamed at the end to create a pointed cowl that’s satisfying to knit, and especially easy to wear.

Mount Fitz Roy Hat

Named after an explorer of the Patagonian coast, Mount Fitz Roy is one of the most appreciated mountain peaks worldwide. Inspired by the silhouette of this legendary peak, this colorwork cap features pointed ridges of colorwork reminiscent of a rugged mountain skyline.

The Mount Fitz Roy Hat is knit from the top down and is the perfect winter accessory with both style and comfort in Highland Lux by HiKoo®. Strong and soft, this Andean Highland Wool has just a touch of Kid Mohair, giving it just the right amount of soft halo.
