“Knitting is beleafing!” with this beautiful hat. As you knit this hat from the bottom up in the round, you’ll see how the small and larger leaves evolve from simple 2-stitch cable crosses.

The 2-stitch cable crosses can be done with a cable needle, or by knitting them as twisted sts. These techniques are explained in the instructions.

Taller 5-leaf stems are alternated with shorter 3-leaf stems for an all over, beautifully textured hat.

The ribbed band ensures the nice fit and transitions into the leaf design perfectly.

Optional fluffy pompom can be added for a fun finish. Shown in an Aran weight yarn on size 10 needles.

Leaf design is both charted and written.
