Bernat Viva in Rust is Warm and Beautiful
While on a dangerous trip through the yarn aisle in Walmart I found the perfect yarn for an EASY Thanksgiving slouchy hat. I picked it for the colors only to find out all the other awesome features of this yarn. The Bernat Viva in Rust is lovely.
Then I figured that as long as I tell you about the yarn I should give you the easy slouchy pattern. But lets start with the yarn.

According to Me
It’s Super Bulky – says 6 but it’s more like a 5
Great Colors – Especially this Autumn spectrum of colors
Warm: It’s a type of Mohair yarn – Feels both thick and light
Interwoven strings: It appears that part of the design is a very thin thread that is woven into the yarn and gives is a sort of round shape. Really interesting and reminds my of Ice Yarn
Looks Felted: When you finish you project – it will look felted – without have to go through the process
Feels a bit scratching – nothing major – has a remedy called softener and the dryer
