Kirsten was a child of the 70's, and her best friend's mom, Ida, "embraced" the decorating trends of the time (think avacado, rust, harvest gold, shag carpets, Tab and trim-line phones).
Inspired by Ida's color palette, Kirsten went in search of the yarns for this hat, and with her great color sense, she has created a trendy way to wear them.
