Year of (Bulky) Hats: Awbury by Courtney Kelley

The latest design in our Year of Bulky Hats is here! You may recognize Awbury as a bulky version of our popular July Hat from 2019! Courtney initially designed the July Hat as a nice break from more complicated knitting projects - it is small enough to be portable, and simple enough that you can knit it while hanging pool side, or relax with a glass of your favorite beverage after a long day out.
