Delightful dandelions encircling your head evoke thoughts of summer to brighten a gloomy winter day! The hat features eight dandelions made of cables and fan stitch on a reverse stockinette background with some fuzzy “seeds” blowing off into the wind. You can knit the pattern as written, omit the “seeds” or add beads wherever you’d like. There is no limit to your imagination!

The pattern calls for and provides instructions for a tubular cast on, but you are free to use whatever cast on method you prefer.

The pattern calls for about 260 yards of fingering weight yarn. Tools needed include US size 1 and 3 16” circular knitting needles, a cable needles and four stitch markers, with one being different as the end of round marker.
