Did I mention I live in Alaska?  This summer has given us some of our warmest months!  The record of Summer 2013 saw 42 days of 70 degrees or warmer.  Today, we broke that record as Summer 2019 moved past that mark with 43 days of 70 degrees or warmer, and it is not over yet.

We had a full exhibit of our beautiful fireweed this summer.  As a tribute and in honor of this gorgeous wildflower, I made some knitted hats using simple and solid colors to feature this lovely fireweed.

I debated on whether to use the satin stitch to make the flowers but decided to go with french knots instead.  I used Woolease Tonal yarn in Raspberry for the flowers and DMC thread 906 for the leaves.  To secure the flower stitching. I patched the inside of the hat with some Waverly Cotton Fabric.

Visit my Etsy Shop for these lovelies! They are available in 3 colors: Charcoal, Taupe and Slate.  These are regular adult sized.  The brim measures 14 inches in circumference but can stretch and fit 22 circumference.  They are shipped out 3-5 business days upon receipt of payment.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer. Happy knitting!
