From the pattern notes:

“Every artist needs a muse, and I have been lucky enough to have acquired more than my fair share in the various facets of my life, including members of my family, mentors from the local spinning guild, and my good buddies at work. Sara is among the latter; she is a beautiful spirit who knows what she likes, and isn’t afraid to let you know. Her personal taste for design and fashion is what inspired me to create a variation of my “Saltspring” hat to fit into her unique style. This hat is softer, slouchier, and is intended to be a fashion accessory rather than a keep-your-ears-warm worsted weight toque. Thanks again Sara!”

This pattern requires some knowledge of short rows - I have not included any instruction for this technique myself within the pattern, but there are MANY wonderful free online resources available that could teach you better than I! My personal favourite is featured on the Purl Bee’s website (which has a wonderful blog if you ever need to add another blog to your reading list!):

Please send along any feedback, and I can’t wait to see your finished projects!
