The Sumac Glass Hat

One of my favorite places near my hometown is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home built for Susan Lawrence Dana, an heiress and feminist socialite who was known for her spooky séances and love of the occult. Her home is one of the best remaining examples of Wright’s prairie style and in this particular home resides what I believe to be some of his most stunning art glass.

Inspired by the Autumn Sumac window, this slouchy hat features a Folded Brim and a stranded color work

design that can be a great primer project for someone new to charted color work or a quick and engaging weekend knit for the more experienced color-workist. I have also included optional instructions for

a Toque version for those who want a shorter, more fitted hat. It comes in one size with directions on how to adjust size with gauge.
