Heartwood Hat

On Sale
Added to cart
A sister pattern to the Soft-Hearted Hat and Cowl, Heartwood is named after the innermost part of a tree’s trunk: its strong core. The hat features subtle tree motifs that grow out of the brim upwards to the crown and can be embellished to create a winter or Christmas tree scene.

If you already own the Soft-Hearted Hat pattern, the Heartwood Hat pattern can be purchased for just £2! This isn't automated on Payhip, so please get in touch if you'd like to take advantage of this offer:

Heartwood is a lightweight but cosy accessory, combining single-round stripes in garter stitch with slipped stitches and a small amount of lace. This patterning creates a gorgeously satisfying texture, making it an interesting and intuitive knit.

The pattern contains photos, a schematic, links to video tutorial for embellishment stitches, and has been professionally tech edited.
