Nakiska Slopes kit

Nakiska Slopes by Allison Thistlewood is a simple cabled hat with bright pops of colour created using a bold-and-brilliant bubble pop stitch pattern. Allison says, “Growing up in Calgary, Canada, we had season passes to Nakiska, the site of the Calgary ’88 Winter Olympic downhill events in the beautiful Rockies. The cables on this hat remind me of the crisscrossed powder on the mogul run, which was always the most perfect at the beginning of the day.”

Knit using Walcot Yarns’ Opus held double for extra-squishy softness and warmth, the kit contains everything you need to make your very own Nakiska Slopes hat… for use on or off the ski run!
