Traders Cove is a regional park nestled along the shores of Okanagan Lake. As a protected vegetation and wildlife park, much of this serene oasis is in its natural state. The park’s two bays are divided by a rocky peninsula adorned with native cacti and sagebrush, and dotted with ponderosa pine.

This hat is knit bottom up, with a textured panel consisting of columns of rick rack and slipped stitches. The pattern includes options for two sizes, and a slouchy or beanie version.
