In Greek mythology, the Alseids were the nymphs of the glens and the groves. They liked to scare travelers. We’ll call them mischievous. This lovely hat will make you look like a wood nymph, with its leafy brim and its cabled trees. Worked up in a cozy worsted weight yarn, it can be done in two colors, or all in one. This pattern is only given in charted form for the leaf brim and the tree dome. Both stitch patterns are slight variations of patterns from the Barbara Walker Treasuries – always a source of great inspiration.

This pattern was created for the Nude Ewe, and $2 of each pattern sold will go to this very important non-profit. It concerns sheep, so of course it’s very important!
