Celebrate your love for buttons with Ysolda's Hendreary pattern, a slouchy hat featuring giant buttons in stranded colorwork. The buttons are worked against a traditional “lice” pattern, which is an excellent way to work a non-repeating motif in stranded colorwork. The allover pattern allows both colors to be used all the way around the hat, making the knitting simple and the hat cozier with the resulting double thick layer.
