A little silly, a little hippie-ish, this hat is named after our favorite local eco-café (Back to the Roots) where it was photographed and partially inspired. A simple hat with a quirky brim and some subtle texture throughout- work in two similar colorways for a blend-y effect or solid/with contrasting colors for something more bold. Here it's shown in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino (the worsted weight one) in Earl Gray and Filigree. (You can peek at the solid-colored prototype here. )
Bonus points if you can say the name without mentally adding “-tooty fresh and fruity” (I can’t.)
You can check ole Rooty out on Ravelry, here.
