This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up using a strand of the Ultra Alpaca along with a strand of lace weight mohair/silk blend. The mohair adds depth of color and a lovely halo to the seed stitch pattern. Leaves are knitted separately and sewn onto the hat. Use leftover scraps of yarn for embroidery or treat yourself to a few Unicorn tails!
