This black, white and gray hat is designed to look like the feathers on a Peregrine Falcon, from the talons on the brim to the beaks on the crown. Pattern calls for 16” circular needles in sizes 2 and 3, plus double-point needles to close up the top. Kits are available with 100% wool yarn sufficient to knit this sophisticated yet whimsical design. Finished hat is lightweight enough to wear from fall through spring.
