Bud is a one-skein wonder! This hat pattern offers two different fits, ‘Beanie’ – a closer fitting head-hugging style, and ‘Slouch’ – a longer, looser hat with a tighter fitting ribbed band. Photographed in Bracken and Horsetail respectively, the easy to work lace stitch pattern offers a delicate feminine touch perfectly matched with the soft pastels of natural dyes.
