This hat is a simple way to show off a brilliant yarn- it works up quickly and gives you a place to add a button or two as accents!
Waldeinsamkeit is a German word meaning woodland solitude- the feeling of being alone in the woods. The first time I heard this word it struck something in me. Going into the forest alone is where i’m happiest, and the great thing of being alone in the forest is that you’re never actually alone.
