Rainy days won’t get you down when you’re wearing this cozy cap!

The Rainy Day Hat features a ribbed hem and stockinette body with
crown shaping, as well as a “sunburst” accent row.

Knit it with Wool of Fame’s Yak Mix Fine for a delightfully soft fabric.
The accent row can be knit with whatever yarn you have on hand — since you need less than 2g, it’s perfect for using up leftovers.

Don’t forget to pair it with the Rainy Day Mitts for a cheerful set!
