A garland of embossed foliage makes a pretty beret to wear hiking in the hills or returning to the city. In the capable hands of cable whisperer Irina Dmitrieva, botanical inspiration translates to a rhythmic, dancing, distinctive motif. Worked from a tubular cast-on for a durable and professional edge, Rambler’s ribbed brim quickly begins to twist into cabled vines that sprout leaves and sweep up to a star-shaped crown. The elasticity of the ribs will accommodate nearly any adult head. Knit from a single skein of Shelter, Rambler is ideal for holiday gifts. Choose a warm autumnal hue, a leafy green, or pop of bright color that will make you smile all winter long.
