Worked sideways, Etereo makes effective use of short rows to not only create the shaping, but the beautiful pattern too. Delicate, floating lines gently wrap the organic form creating an overall ethereal effect. Worked in DK weight yarn the Hat can easily be adjusted for a range of sizes by changing needle size, gauge or yarn.

Hat Description
