The image of a giant saguaro cactus silhouetted against a desert sunset is synonymous with the American west…and rightly so.   These giant plants with arms that seem to be reaching for the sky are pictured in nearly every TV show or movie about the old west.  This beanie captures that spirit with dark saguaro shapes against the colors of the desert sunset or…on a bright sunny day in springtime. 

Optional embroidered blooms added after the knitting is complete.
