This pattern has been tech edited and test knit. It includes a second PDF accessible for knitters with low vision, following guidelines from Ravelry's Accessible Patterns group.

The Laurel Hat is the companion to the Kalorama Sweater. It builds off of the same stitch motifs, which have been rearranged for a hat. Because the two are so closely related, I wanted to choose a name that was closely related, too – and as luck would have it, one block over from Kalorama Street is Laurel Street, a pretty little road full of old Craftsman homes that runs alongside a quiet park and is home to our community theater.
