Put A Bird On It! Your Knit & Crochet Hats Will Never Be The Same!

I know this isn’t going to replace your Tilley, and maker Laura (aka indigonightowl) wants you to know that this has nothing to do with Portlandia (sorry, I couldn’t resist the reference …) – she just likes birds. Well, I do too and I think this is such a great idea – absolutely ADORE it!

Put A Bird On It! Your Knit & Crochet Hats Will Never Be The Same!

Knit by indigonightowl, hat and bird pattern is “Yoruba Bird” by Vicki Square.
