FREE-SPIRITED. GENTLE. WARM.

Meet Phoebe. A delightfully quirky winter hat you’ll want to knit again and again. Light as air, soft as a kitten, and feminine in a street-smart kind of way, Phoebe is an utterly addictive knitting project that works up surprisingly quickly with simple stranded colour work. I enjoyed knitting the first one so much I immediately cast on another…you know, just in case Phoebe’s twin stops by ;)
