Smock Mill Hat
Enjoy the serenity and peace of the outdoors while wearing the Smock Mill hat. Worked from the top down, the crown of this beret features swirling, alternating panels of spiraled purl columns and stockinette, while the base continues the purl columns down to the brim. With just enough positive ease to provide the perfect amount of drape, Smock Mill knits up quickly using only a partial skein of sport weight yarn. Use up your sweater leftovers or give yourself an excuse to splurge on something exquisite at your local yarn shop!
