A light weight, mid-season hat, “Raindrop” was inspired by a nomadic life lived in notoriously rainy places. The colour choice pays homage to my present nearest city, Seattle, WA. The beads are pre-strung on to the yarn and then placed at the base of each raindrop to add depth and a watery glimmer to the finished hat.

The pattern is designed to fit 20” (51cm) to 23” (58 cm) head sizes. It is in written form and will appeal to intermediate knitters.
