The twisted trees and golden leaves of this hat are inspired both by the golden woods of Tolkien’s Lothlorien and the floral motifs of the Art Nouveau movement at the turn of the 20th century. This hat makes use of cables and stranded colorwork at the same time to bring out the twining trunks and branches, and leaves are shaped using increases and decreases to give them smooth lines.
