It is with absolute joy that I am publishing yet another pattern this year, this one in honor of my wedding anniversary!

A Nymphalis is a type of tortoiseshell butterfly and is one of my favorite types of butterflies! This pattern incorporates a similar stitch style to my Canterlot fingerless gloves pattern, so while the stitch pattern isn’t worked in exactly the same way, this hat is a beautiful and much requested match to the gloves!

Available in multiple sizes to fit children to adults, with written and charted instructions in an easy to follow manner. Included are also instructions for how to easily adjust the pattern in case you have troubles with row gauge.

Many thanks to my test knitters and tech editor, without you all, this pattern wouldn’t have been ready in enough time to publish it on my anniversary! I’m very grateful for your willingness to work quickly and provide tons of feedback!
