Sarah and I often talk about the importance of trees. The comfort we find from psithurism, the sound of the wind in tree leaves (and the joy to find there is a word for it!). In addition, there is so much beauty and a feeling of architecture or protection a forest provides.

Our Psithurism hat and mitts set celebrates the structure and action of trees!

This is a pattern for a beanie style hat and a pair of mitts. Both are worked the same, from the rib up and in the round using the stranded colourwork knitting technique.
Feel free to make any adjustments as needed, for best fit.
