This hat is named for the hedgerow bounty we would bring home from our weekend excursions. My Mom would cook the berries into a delicious jam that could sparkle just as red as the raspberries beckoning between the green leaves, or be dark and jewel toned when there were more blackberries in the mix.

Designed to match the Hedgerow Jam cowl, it uses the same design elements but uses different techniques.

Worked in stranded color, the hat becomes nice and dense and is sure to keep your head toasty.
