    Lydia. This beautiful name is of Greek origin and means beautiful one. For some religions, in their bible it also means kind, kindred spirit. Many of us have a Lydia in our lives. Mine I have known since grade school, but really connected as dear friends in adulthood. She embodies her namesake in her actions and words.


    The design for the Lydia hat is delicate yet warm. Knit in worsted weight yarn, with decreases and yarnovers to create a lovely stitch pattern.


    Make this hat custom for you. Choose from a short or long, folded brim with a closer beanie fit, or loose slouch feel.
