I designed this when I was engaged and thinking about our "honeymoon baby," should my new husband and I be so lucky. I chose to use a Herculean "love knot" and the "sheaf of wheat" motif because they represent love and fertility. Now, you don't have to be trying for a baby to enjoy this pattern, but you could say it worked! Baby Owen was born almost exactly 40 weeks from our wedding day.
This hat fits loosely and could be considered a "slouch" hat. I wore it religiously last winter, even during a bitingly cold trip to Chicago for Vogue Knitting Live, and I just loved it. I hope you do, too!
