This is the perfect dog lovers toque! There is stranding, so you have to put up with that (sigh) but the frolicking dogs playing on the new spring grass with the puffy clouds floating overhead make it a worthwhile endeavor! Because of the height of the chart and the gauge of yarn I used, this particular pattern will only work for pre-teen through adult sizing. If you want a smaller hat and want to keep the integrity of the chart, I would recommend using dk or even fingering weight yarn, and the appropriately sized needles and keeping everything else the same.

While standing in the long, long line at Joann Fabrics, I look around and notice that the colors and crafts are all light, green, pretty. Dang. It’s spring. And I’ve got all this heavy yarn in my basket. I’m getting some beads and earring hooks…maybe I’ll throw something cute and springy together!
