Wildfire Hat was inspired by my own surreal experience of seeing a wild fire in the Rocky Mountains, and (I hope) it gives a respecftul nod to the eerie beauty and awe that nature inspires.
Using wide charts with few repeats and beautiful colour-changing yarns, this hat is a creative exercise in colorwork.
You can also find the worsted version online and in-store.
