When I originally dyed this colorway, I was aiming for something for Halloween. However, after I dyed it I thought it looked great for all of autumn and not just Halloween.
I decided to name it Sleepy Hollow after Washington Irving's short story, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."
Whether you decide to use it for Halloween or just as a great fall colorway, I hope you enjoy it!
I dyed this on my Squoosh DK yarn base, which is made of extra-fine superwash merino and comes in extra-large 4-ounce skeins.
Sleepy Hollow on Squoosh DK
250 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies
100% Extra-Fine Superwash Merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Sleepy Hollow would look great with Chocolate, Eggplant, and Little Black Dress to name a few.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using Sleepy Hollow to give you an idea of how it can work up.
