The hat begins with a garter stitch band shaped with short rows so that it dips down to cover the ears, shaping for the crown worked into the colourwork pattern.

The Ornäsbjork is a type of silver birch that’s the national tree of Sweden.

The colourwork patterns are inspired not by the iconic silhouettes of birch trees in winter but by their details: the textures and shapes of their catkins, trunks and leaves.
