These leaves love the light! The leafy band of this hat is knit flat, then joined as stitches are picked up, and the body of the hat is knit in the round. A slight overlap of offset leaves gives the impression that the band is growing toward the sun! A chunky yarn knit at a tight gauge makes for a densely-stitched hat that will keep you warm all winter while you dream of spring.

I LOVE KNITTING! I hope to someday have a wardrobe comprised mostly of handmade awesomeness. I knit a lot of cardigans and I have a weird obsession with fingering weight yarn. I also dabble in designing my own pieces. I am the luckiest girl in the world, because I get to work from home and play with string all day, and because the men in my life think my knitting is amazing. My other interests include my kiddo, my guy, coffee, crazy music, and puns.
