Birch Bark Cap


This woodsy cap is a fun project and goes with any outfit. It is cozy and enchanting, delicately cabled in a diamond pattern with texture like tree bark.

The crocheted brim is made with two layers making sure it always holds a perfectly curved shape. Of course, the brim is optional if you prefer a beanie style.

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown with a bulky weight yarn. The crocheted brim is added afterwards. This hat has two sizes and no visible seam.
