Fly Away hat is knit in the round and features a simple fair isle motif and a pom pom to top it off. This hat was inspired by my own backyard. I live in the woods in Maine where we are fortunate to be surrounded by wildlife, including many different bird species. However, once the leaves start turning colors and the temperatures become much cooler, many of our chirpy neighbors disappear for the winter (although we have a few that stay year round). The birds fly away to their warm, sunny winter homes.
