Silver Fir Hat will keep you cozy during colder months with beautiful cables gracing the crown like a forest of fir trees reaching for the sky. The horizontally knit brim keeps the knitting interesting, while also adding a snug fit around the ears. Two buttons add the finishing touch ­— perfect for those leftover cardigan buttons that are too pretty not to show off! A solid or semi-solid DK weight yarn will showcase this pattern best.

Be sure to check out the coordinating Silver Fir Cowl and Silver Fir Mitts too!
