Wild Knits Knit- Flight of the Osprey Hat
FLIGHT OF THE OSPREY HAT by Kelly Forster
Named for the migratory ospreys often spotted along Oregon’s lakes, reservoirs, and rivers from springtime to early fall. These birds are talented aerial acrobats, often seen diving into water bodies from heights of 30-100 feet!
Pattern features an arching lace pattern with air beneath each “wing”, emulating an osprey in flight.
Hat is worked in the round, in one piece, from brim to crown.
