Great first color project!

Rosy & Grey was inspired by a cold November morning, where before the sun comes up fully, the world is rendered in shades of gray and rose. Melancholy and Beauty all wrapped up into one! And just like the fog sometimes can float up and swirl down, the pattern swirls on the finished hat!

Simple and easy to make, warm but not overly bulky, it’s the perfect hat for those days when you just need a little more warmth but aren’t ready to give up on your style. Worked in the round with an easy 2 color pattern, you can make one of these in an afternoon!

You can choose which way to wear your hat, flipping the rim up for a shorter cap or leaving it as is for more coverage.
