The Star Blossom Hat is mainly seed stitch ribbing, shaped with short rows for a longer back to cover your ears, and designed to be long enough to turn up all around. It has a stockinette stitch top to serve as a background for some sweet and simple embroidery, reminiscent of a cherry blossom or a starburst.

I designed this hat for myself, and decided to share the pattern after a friend declared it her favorite thing I’ve ever made. The full instructions are available on my blog; including tips for embroidery, and how to customize this hat to fit your head size. My hat is made with another friend’s handspun yarn. I’ve also included a lot about that yarn to help you choose something similar to knit with.
