Hi, Knitters,

I am proud to present another free pattern for you over on the Barrett Wool Co. Journal! I have a lovely textured hat for you called Clover. It is a fun hat to knit with an interesting stitch pattern that uses a unique technique to get the little leaves to appear. Once you get the stitch down you’ll look forward to this round. The hat is made out of one skein of Home Worsted Weight which is enough to make one of each of the adult size and the baby size hats. It’s kind of perfect!

Have fun and enjoy this Journal free pattern! The pattern for Clover is only available on this Journal post.

Please share any finished Clover hats with me on Instagram. I’d love to see what you create.

Love, Susan
