Magnolia Pink Knit Hat

We have a few trees of magnolias down the street that are first ones to bloom and it signifies to me beginning of the spring, beginning of new life. I’m so excited to see blossoming flowers of magnolia in the next couple of weeks that the only color I thought of while designing the pattern was light pink. Meet my new hat knitting pattern for beginners, that is not cable-styled, find a bit of time and enjoy the time knitting it. My warmest hugs to all the readers.
