Silver and Gold
The colors and the yarn do all the work in Silver and Gold. I have always loved the color combination of silver and gold (and I always start singing the Burl Ives song!), but worked in three colors on a natural background, your color combinations are endless. The delicious softness of the single-ply extra fine Merino wool makes the hat a delight to wear. Designed to be worn with the brim folded double and pulled down over the ears.
Sized for toddler, child/teen, adult, adult large.
