Uchujin (Cosmology) Yarn Set
This yarn set includes yarn only. The pattern is available in Cosmology DARUMA Collection 2022.
A simple slouchy beret-style hat with a long and plain brim that can be worn in different ways. The knit pompom looks like a satellite or the head of an extra-terrestrial being.
Uchujin is worked in the round from the brim up to the crown. The small spherical ball attached at the center crown is worked tightly on small DPNs and is stuffed with either scrap yarn or other lightweight filling of choice. There is an option to brush the mohair yarn to create an extra fluffy fabric texture using a mohair brush.
