Ghost Ranch is a really fun way to explore color and texture using the Mosaic knitting method. This hat begins with a two-color brioche rib that is then rolled up and transitioned into the textural Mosaic pattern. The Ghost Ranch colorway of Spincycle's Dyed in the Wool was created especially for this project and inspired by Andrea's time in the New Mexico desert.
