The Goblin Hat was originally published in The Holiday Issue for Rhythm of the Home.
Inspired by one of our favorite fairy tale creatures. This slouchy hat folds over to button in the back, creating the illusion of a goblin’s head.  It comes in a variety of sizes and is perfect for beginners.

    O Kindred Sister,
    would that I were so blessed as to be in circumstances such as yours… every day has its own fabric, to be sure, but at the least for me, it is a comfort to know there is a soul who has achieved what I would dream of. I see a most excellent and fabulous hat, made beautiful and magnificent by a spirit and a relationship with our nurturing and healing Earth. (I do go on… ~ sorry). I am very appreciative you have shared your creation with the rest of us, and I will humbly take to my needles now. Peace and All Blessings Fly to You!
