This slouchy beanie is reminiscent of the wonderfully sprouting cassia tree branches and it’s flowering buds. It has a method to it’s madness, creating a delightful pattern as it grows up toward the sun.

Cassia is constructed of a series of increases, decreases, and yarn overs which gives the illusion of intricate cables without that pesky 3rd needle.

She is made for long walks admiring nature and petting small animals, but if you’d like to wear her anywhere else, I’m sure she’ll be happy to tag along :)
