Sagebrush is a woody and herbaceous plant native to western North America. This aromatic shrub grows in arid and semi-arid conditions throughout a range of cold desert and mountain habitats, such as British Columbia’s Southern Interior. Sagebrush provides food and habitat for a variety of wildlife and was traditionally used as a herbal medicine.

This hat is knit bottom up, with an all-over textured pattern inspired by our local sagebrush. The pattern includes options for three sizes, and a slouchy or beanie version.
