The Camaura toque will keep you both warm and stylish as you learn herbology in the palace gardens.
A buttoned brim, flower buds and twisted stitches adorn this chic hat.

The brim is knitted in the round and turned inside out to flatter pretty handpainted yarns. Stitches are picked up to form the body of the hat and the twisted stitch pattern leads to a star-patterned crown.
