~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The best projects are ones that are super functional, look great and are fun to knit. Warm and chic, Fire Star is just that - a folded brim, cables, texture, a smattering of bobbles and a bit of lace over a tonal yarn - a hat both warm and “cool.”

The body pattern is both written and charted.
