this pattern is part of the from field to skin project. you can find out more about this super-local-to-me yarn from my friend christel by visiting ferme fiola farm.

spruce trees grow tall and strong, and mature over decades. they grow in northern regions and stretch their needles as much as 200 feet into the sky. this hat’s brim has a stand of spruce-like stitches wrapping around your wee one’s head while locally-sourced and unddyed merino wool creates a big sky to right to the tip. make matching hats for the whole family by knitting up spruce for those bigger trunks.
