SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!

Dandelion Days Hat has a beautiful combination of lace & seed stitch which makes this hat look more complicated than it actually is to knit. You will be pleasantly surprised to find out how easy it is to memorize the stitch pattern. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.

I have also knit a cowl that matches this hat which you can find here.
