Woodard Bay Hat

Please enter a quantity.

Description

Designed by Jann Hoppler for BK Collective, this hat is knit in the round, with directions for two sizes which can be made in either DK or Aran weight yarn. Because the twisted rib pattern is very stretchy, each size fits a wide range of head measurements. This stitch pattern makes this hat warm and cozy; warm enough to keep you toasty while watching the Great Blue Herons and Cormorants at the Woodard Bay Conservation Area.
