A little silly, a little hippie-ish, this hat is named after our favorite local eco-caf (Back to the Roots) where it was photographed and partially inspired. A simple hat with a quirky brim and some subtle texture throughout- work in two similar colorways for a blend-y effect or solid/with contrasting colors for something more bold. Bonus points if you can say the name without mentally adding "-tooty fresh and fruity" (I can't.) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit decrease knit in the round "dot" stitch (instructions included) braiding and pom pom making (optional) GAUGE 20 sts and 29 rows in 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS ~ 22" around

I'm Alex Tinsey and I design stuff! I like simple textures and interesting shapes. I like soft wools and kettle-dyes. I like ice cream. Addis. Hats. Spinning. Ducklings. And I like you too, sugar cheeks. I can?t say I care for bio-writing, though. Boring stuff: I graduated with a degree in psychology (still in mint condition!) from Reed College, after dinking around at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Kenyon College for a while. I've been knitting since about 2004, designing since about 2006. I was making up my very own garter stitch squares and randomly-decreased hats before that, but I won't count it. I've had patterns published in Knitty, Knit Simple, the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, and Interweave Knits, though I generally go the self-publishing route.
