CAST ON: Leni by Isabell Kraemer

Cold days have us craving cute headwear, which is why we went all heart eyes when we saw Leni from Isabell Kraemer. The bottom up. The free hat pattern (yes, free!) instructs to hold two strands – a fingering weight merino and a lace weight mohair – together as you work from the bottom up. The hat features an invisible double brim, a delicate band of texture (that resembles Christmas trees), and a comfy slouch, making it a fun project to add to your winter project line up.
