Perennial



When spring arrives, a perennial plant once dormant, will grow and bloom once again. 
I am so pleased to share with you my newest pattern design, Perennial, which
 captures the beauty of new spring growth with a sprouting plant motif growing up one side.



The great thing about this little hat is that it only requires 125 yards of worsted weight yarn making it a great one-skein, stash-busting project! 

As with most of my patterns, both written and charted instructions are included to accommodate different knitting styles.

Modeling and photography provided by the beautiful Julie Crawford of knittedbliss.com.

Oh wow, what a great hat! I love how the leaf motif pops against the stockinette. Just enough detail to be interesting! Love the colour, too.

Love the pattern! And the scratch-off idea, too -- been considering doing something like that for my own hard copies. Beautifully done.

Ah, this is wonderful! I've never seen a wheat/leaf motif like this before. I think I'll need to bookmark this one for sure and come back to it when I'm done my cardigan! :)
