“Perri: Traveler. Someone who lives near a pear tree.” I am fascinated with name meanings, especially when they lead to inspiration in knits. “Perri’s Pattern” evokes decorative windows in houses of worship worldwide as well as heavy hanging fruits from pears to figs. The textural lace of the body of the beanie travels into ribs inspired by the ceiling of Baroque cathedrals. Tourist or homebody, this cozy hat will comfort you year round.
