Pattern Trial: Foliage Hat

Knitted leaves are classic. They are something I had always wanted to try in my early knitting career, but I shied away for years because they were SO intimidating. It wasn't until I found the Foliage Hat Pattern by Irina Dmitrieva (which you can view for free by clicking here) that I decided to take the plunge and try it out. The pictures featured on this page are from my very first attempt at knitting this hat, which ended up being a staple in my winter wardrobe for the following four years.

As you can see by my success, this pattern is great for any knitter looking to dip their toe into knitting leaves. As a confident, yet still fairly inexperienced, knitter, I personally was able to make it through the whole thing without having to frog a single row. I would, however, caution that this pattern is best for early-intermediate knitters. Newbies may find it difficult to follow the numerous rows of instructions without getting lost.

If you want to make a beanie exactly like mine, you'll need one skein of this yarn.
