After it rains two inches, wait two weeks and mushrooms will be popping up everywhere in the woods. While it’s raining, you might as well knit a cozy hat for your favourite mycologist’s next venture out. Amanitas are one of the most common and visually striking mushrooms we see here on the west coast of Vancouver Island – but don’t eat ‘em!

The finished hat is 19½ (21½)”/ 49.5 (54.5)cm around at brim and 10 (11)”/ 25.5 (28)cm deep. To fit with approximately 2”/5cm negative ease.
