Feather light and delicate, Azurite will make a sweet addition to your wardrobe—or your jewelry box. The gossamer lines of the stitch pattern form a chain of jewels around the crown, creating a semi-precious style that can be worn with the ribbed hem folded up like a beanie, or left long and slouchy. The lovely lightweight fabric keeps you warm without bulk, and the charted and written instructions are delightfully easy to follow.
