Taking a different perspective while observing all the flowers bloom. I was inspired by the multitude of petals of zinnias. As they slowly bloom in a rainbow of colors welcoming the hot summer days.

The Zinnia hat was inspired by these layering petals. Creating a layered look with colorwork that leads to a flowering crown. The simplicity of the colorwork makes this an enjoyable knit that keeps you knitting for just one more round.
