Echinacea is a relaxed hat design by Karie Westermann that combines a classic gansey motif with a single Tree of Life cable column. Knitted in our warm lofty yarn Lore, it’s the perfect project for beginners looking for a small project and includes both charted and written instructions.
Echinacea is the second pattern from The Almanac Series, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns. This collection will feature a new design every month, each in a different yarn according to the qualities of the yarn to match the season.
