This hat is named for the hedgerow bounty we would bring home from our weekend excursions. My Mom would cook the berries into a delicious jam that could sparkle just as red as the raspberries beckoning between the green leaves, or be dark and jewel toned when there were more blackberries in the mix. Designed to match the Hedgerow Jam cowl (also available on Craftsy), it uses the same design elements but uses different techniques. Worked in stranded color, the hat becomes nice and dense and is sure to keep your head toasty.

I am originally from Switzerland, but live in the US since ‘99. I have been knitting since I was about five years old and I mostly make my own designs and patterns. I started designing my own sweaters and accessories at an early age, as that was just the way sweaters where done. Only later did I transition to indulging in the luxury of ready-made patterns. I used to design and make mostly sweaters and other cold weather favs, (I did come from a snowy place, after all) but have fallen head over heels for lace shawls and have not looked back since! You can see more of my designs under OwlCat Designs on Ravelry. Thanks for your interest in my patterns and I hope you enjoy knitting the designs as much as I did making them for you! :)
