Thistledown mimics the fluffy downy that encompasses the thistle to protect its fruit. Feathery soft and wrapped in a beautiful halo.
The stretchy thistle stitch creates a plump & cushy fabric. When knit in alpaca or merino wool, it is exceptionally warm but light and airy when knit up in a cooler fiber such as cotton or linen.
Hat will measure a standard adult size head but can easily be adjusted to fit smaller size heads by casting on fewer stitches.
This pattern is a knit level: Beginner
Sizing: Adult (22" to 24.5" circumference head)
