Spikelet Bulky Knit Hat Pattern

Nature is beautiful and whenever I struggle with any pattern, I plug into its truly unlimited creativity. Spikelet hat was inspired by sprouting seeds of wheat and broccoli in my kitchen and brought to you with yarn and needles 🙂 Spikelet bulky hat is made using circular 9 mm needles, so you need to know how to knit in the round before jumping into this project. Not sure how to do it, just check my video tutorial and ask questions in the comment section.
