I love the Gwenevere sweater so much I decided to make a hat with the same leaf design. I made the green one with the yarn I had left over from the sweater and then made another one longer to make a slouchy version. This yarn combination is so soft it feels like a warm fuzzy halo on your head. The hat knits up pretty fast and doesn’t take a lot of yarn making it a perfect choice for gifts!
