Get out and enjoy the outdoors with the Autumn Flora Hat. A quick knit in toasty, warm aran weight yarn, Autumn Flora features a twisted ribbing that diminishes into pointed arches that, in turn, trail into the body of the hat before transforming into the stems of large, oval leaves. Samples were knit in a luscious merino/alpaca blend tweed, but this hat would be equally suited to any other aran weight yarn as well.
