Button Band Hat


Gilded Cap

Recently  went to the bottom of the wool bag and found a hat that needed finishing. Discoveries like these are best dealt with immediately. At least that’s what I’ve decided. Getterdone! = freedom to get going on other projects.

Knitted from Estelle yarn from Peru, Ultra Wool 50% wool/50% superfine alpaca. Colour: golden rod. The bucolic button is made from coconut. Any takers? It might be spring but caps like these are still a staple in the Manitoba climate where winds are always snappy and can still yield a bite.
