Sassafras is a quick and simple knit.
The beauty of this beanie lies in its reversibility; wear it reverse stocking stitch side as a slouchie beanie or wear it stocking stitch side with brim folded up as more of a traditional beanie fit.

Sassafras is knit from the bottom or brim upwards. The garter stitch brim is knit first as a strip. Then stitches are picked up along the edge of the brim and the body is worked.
The lace is an easy one and is quite intuitive. The pattern includes both chart and written instructions for the lace.
The brim is finished with a special button.

Sassafras is the matching beanie pattern for Olinda.
Both are places of magic and beauty.

If you’ve already purchased Olinda, for the remainder of August, when you checkout Sassafras, it will be yours for only $1.
