“Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they? Think not of them, thou hast thy music too…” ~To Autumn by John Keats


Ode to Autumn is the second in my series of seasonally themed hats. Ode to Summer Hat is the first. Place both hats in your Ravelry cart for a bundle discount - no coupon code needed! If you already own Ode to Summer, Ode to Autumn will come up at an automatic discount!

Warm days, crisp nights, crunchy leaves underfoot, and bonfires.
Do you miss Autumn yet? Ode to Autumn is a tribute to my favorite season: a way to remember all the best parts of autumn while we freeze through the winter, or a way to anticipate it through the hot Summer.

This hat features a simple lace leaf motif framed by gently twisting cables. The motif and cable panel covers 25% of the hat, and the rest is filled with a comfortable moss stitch for snuggly warmth and stretch. It has sizes that comfortably fit all the way from a newborn to a men’s XL, so there’s a size for everyone!
