Braided leaves hat is a matching hat for the braided leaves pullover. It features the same stranded colorwork with delicate outlined leaves, perfect to work up some little rests.
Worked bottom up, it starts with Jenny’s magic cast on as a provisional cast on. A doubled brim with - at the bottom - a small chart of ‘tilted’ lines refers to the pullovers ‘twisted details’. It comes in three sizes: kids, medium and large. Instructions for a beanie or a more slouchy hat included.
The samples are medium size: slouchy fit and beanie.
The colorwork is charted only.

Tips on colorwork and fair isle to successfully knit the leaves are included.
