Linear Systems Hat

Design by Ann Weaver

A slight slouch, a funky pattern, and endless color possibilities! I’m quite bewitched with the zingy color combinations of Spud & Chloë Fine, but this cap would be equally fantastic stitched in neutrals or a neutral with a pop of color!

Yarn Shown: Black Pepper #7825 , Sassafras #7808
