NEW PATTERN: Winter Wheat Hat

Click on over to Ravelry or Etsy to pick up my latest pattern, the Winter Wheat Hat. 

Featuring a stylized wheat pattern, the design was inspired by the planting of fields that occurs in the late fall in colder climates. Winter wheat was introduced to the US in the late 1800s by the Germans from Russia, and is planted throughout northern Great Plains in the late fall. The seeds sprout before the ground freezes and then becomes dormant until early spring when the sun warms the soil and spring rains bring forth the fields of golden grain.

The Winter Wheat hat is the perfect knit to keep your head warm throughout the freezing winter. With a slight slouch fit, the hat is knit bottom up in worsted weight yarn. Winter Wheat knits up quick showcasing two or three colors, topped off with an optional pom.
