Bunting Bonnet


The Bunting Bonnet is a fanciful hat for all ages. The fluffy trim is comfy and warm. This hat is best when made with stripes using your stash yarn, but it is a bit of a blank canvas. Try different stripe combinations or use Noro and let your yarn do the work. This is a great hat for inspiring fairy feelings.

This hat is made as a long rectangle, which is folded in half and stitched up the back. Trim and ties are crocheted on afterwards and there is an elastic gather in the back for a comfortable fit. This hat has three sizes.

This is a 2-page PDF pattern. $4.00 USD

Fables Hat


Fables is without a doubt my favourite hat of the year. It has a brim that can button up or down and some darling cables that can be embroidered or left plain. The extra bulk over your ears is guaranteed to keep you warm. This whimsical cap also makes a special gift. 

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown with the brim added afterwards in garter stitch. The brim is folded up on either side. It can be tacked in place with buttons or buttonholes can be made so you have the option to fold it down. This hat has one size.

Staghorn Hat


Knitting this hat requires some skill and patience, but the end results are worth the effort. The cables make it very cozy and warm and the oversized panels on the earflaps are what make this hat unique.

This hat is knit from bottom to the crown, beginning with the earflaps which are made separately and then incorporated into the body of the hat for a seamless design.Tassels and attached i-cord trim are added afterwards. This hat is one size.
