Pattern Description:

Frivolity is a fast and easy knit, leaving you with lots of time to decorate and embellish it. The hat is fulled (felted) before embellishing.

I started knitting to help me sanely get through the cold Alberta winters, and now I just can't stop! I love to knit and design using beautiful hand dyed yarns and prefer to support independant dyers. I share a blog with 3 designer friends at, tweet with them as TAATdesigns, and can be reached for pattern support at I am Girlymom on Ravelry.
