With a month as hot as July, it’s hard not to be inspired by the sun. So when I needed a yarn that captures all those gorgeous tones, I knew it could only be Essence of Autumn.
Sheryl’s Saffron colourway is bursting with yellows, reds, and oranges—every bit as bright and warm as the sun itself, and on a beautiful BFL base that’s absolutely perfectly for structured stitches.
The pattern this month was a fun challenge to take from vision to reality: a big, floppy, lacey sun hat! With a bit of millinery wire and a crochet hook (no experience necessary!), the hat has a structured edge for maximum shade. Or, the pattern can easily be modified to make a beanie instead, so you can show off this gorgeous yarn no matter your style.
