Pattern Description:

Thistledown mimics the fluffy downy that encompasses the thistle to protect its fruit. Feathery soft and wrapped in a beautiful halo.

The stretchy thistle stitch creates a plump & cushy fabric. When knit in alpaca or merino wool, it is exceptionally warm but light and airy when knit up in a cooler fiber such as cotton or linen.

Hat will measure a standard adult size head but can easily be adjusted to fit smaller size heads by casting on fewer stitches.

Kalurah Hudson on craftsy.com

I am a self taught pattern designer and mom of three children. (6, 8 and 10) They're a wild bunch but I keep myself sane by creating the lovely designs that are forever swirling around inside my head...while they play!

My design style reads romantic and at times vintage and whimsical. I am getting to do what I love every single day and hope that knitting and crochet never ever goes away!
