Valley Yarns 470 Strobus Hat
Pinus Strobus, commonly known as the Eastern White Pine, grows throughout New England. The cable pattern on this soft and cozy Strobus Hat looks just like the long, tasseled needles of this storied tree. The hat is knit in warm Valley Yarns Berkshire from the brim up with crown decreases cleverly worked into the stitch pattern. Note: Stitch pattern is both charted and written out.
