Fall(ing) in Love with Color Collection, Piece 4

Fall is in the air and you need the perfect set to swing in to get your Pumpkin Spice Latte. Hats always intrigue me, but I can never seem to find a style that works for me. I love bonnets, though, they just seem so practical, a hybrid between your favorite headband and hat, but able to keep your head warm, without leaving you with “hat hair”. Using a color palette of fall colors from The Fiber Seed, this collection is a wonderful opportunity to play with the colors of Fall and work on your knitting skills. Increase your knitting skills and complete a full fall wardrobe.
