This slouchy, beanie-style hat features fledgling plants sprouting up on one side. It's very reminiscent of the new springtime growth that I am seeing all around me in the garden.
For this knit, I indulged once again in one of my favorite yarns, Becoming Art. This time in the Cielo Worsted with the colorway "Looking Out". What a lovely blend of vibrant greens.
This yarn is crisp and offers excellent stitch definition. I knit up a second sample of the Seedling hat in The Fibre Company Canopy yarn in the Conifer colorway. You can find this hat in the last picture. The color looks similar to the Becoming Art yarn due to lighting, but in real life the Conifer colorway is much lighter. This yarn has a softer hand and produces a fabric with more drape. Although the yarn texture differs from the Cielo Worsted, I think that it still showed off the Seedling pattern really nicely.
Both yarns are a great option, and these green colorways are so gorgeous.
