  • Holdfast - Hat

    The Holdfast Hat was inspired by rippling water moving over stationary vegetation.The three colors invite to play with your favorite colorways, or branch out of your comfort zone a little!

    The hat is worked from the brim up. After the one-color brim you work stranded colorwork throughout the body and the crown, never working more than two colors at a time.
