The “reindeer hat with trees” is a staple & a classic. It’s been done many times before, but that’s why these motifs are so often reused. Many hours spent looking at old photos, designs and shapes helped bring this reinvented reindeer hat to life. My daughter loves it - always a good sign - and the braid and tassel in a “pop” color make it pleasing to the eye. The aim here was to create deer and trees that are graceful, not stylized or stiff. Please enjoy this quick-to-knit-in-the-round cap in 3 sizes (Infant, Child, Adult) in worsted weight yarn.
