When spring arrives, a perennial plant once dormant, will grow and bloom once again. I am so pleased to share with you my newest pattern design, Perennial, which captures the beauty of new spring growth with a sprouting plant motif growing up one side.
The great thing about this little hat is that it only requires 125 yards of worsted weight yarn making it a great one-skein, stash-busting project! As with most of my patterns, both written and charted instructions are included to accommodate different knitting styles.
