Pattern #32 in the original U.S. National Park inspired
line of beanies

by Nancy Bates

There’s a place in west Texas where the desert meets the mountains, rivers carve majestic canyons, night skies sparkle with millions of stars, and (in early spring after the rain) bluebonnets line the roadsides and turn the hillsides blue. This is Big Bend! Knit in the round from the bottom up, this beanie features rich colors from the desert floor and bluebonnet fields to the browns and golds of the subtly textured mountains. Simple embroidery stitches add dimension and even more color to the beloved state flowers of Texas.

Pattern includes detailed instructions and photos on how to embroider the flowers.
