Perfect details, a little slouch and subtle colour combine for a quietly elegant Hat that you’ll want to wear as much as you love making it. Choose a smooth yarn with not too much variegation to show off Ponderosa’s distinctive motif.

Tutorials are included for cast-on and cast-off techniques as well as how to pick up cast-off stitches to create the beautiful horizontal chain.
