In late winter warmer days start to become more frequent here in NYC, and hardy plants begin to emerge from the cool soil. I love to search for these optimistic signs of spring. This hat was inspired by those brave little seedlings. After all, those warm days are often followed by freezing cold weather, when a hat like the Seedling Beanie will be just what’s needed.

This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up. The colorwork section is worked from a chart.
