Companion to the Leafy Mitts, this hat features strong, organic motifs, with embossed leaves circling the head, and the crown shaping creating subtle leaf “negatives”.

Note: you could technically get a hat out of a single sized skein of Essential Merino Aran, but it will be a squeaker - you’ll have to use your swatch and there’s no leeway for gauge variation. A better option would be the double sized skeins which have plenty of yardage for a hat & mitt combo.

Essential Merino Aran is available from Impulse of Delight.
