Design
Snow Fern works up quickly with heavy-worsted or bulky weight yarn. Worked in the round with cables that slowly taper outwards and inwards, creating fern-like shapes. A longtail tubular cast-on is utilized, allowing this hat to fit a wide range of head sizes. Written in one size but the 20-st repeat can be added or omitted for larger or smaller sizes.
This pattern is charted and also includes written instructions.
