posted this pattern on my website, Divine Debris, some time ago but I didn’t update it here. I’m not really sure, to be honest with you, as to why I didn’t update it here. Laziness, probably. I’ve been in a real funky mood these last couple of weeks- just listless and without motivation to do anything. I’ve got a decent amount of homework due next week and, well, I’ve barely begun to work on it. Alas… it will get done. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can add the Willow Sack Hat to your Ravelry que here. You can download a pdf here and the website features a nice, printer friendly, version for you.

So, do you want the pattern?
