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. This hat has two sizes and no visible seam.

This is a 5-page PDF pattern. $4 USD
