Please note this is a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY with an intermediate skill level. You will not receive a finished hat. You will receive a downloadable PDF file (in English) that provides some written instructions, a chart for the main body of the hat and a link to a video technique tutorial so you can knit one yourself for an average adult head.
I love nature, my friends, and cattails have always been an early sign of fall in the Midwest where I was born and raised. The cattails grow tall in marshy areas, and I just love how they bend and sway when the crisp, autumn wind blows. The silhouettes of those cattails will pop in this design against some beautiful, variegated yarn. This hat is such a perfect accessory to wear on a fall hike!
