I love the combination of chunky lace and a large squishy flower.
The hat is quick to knit and the lace pattern is just a 4 row repeat so it is easy to remember and doesn't take too much concentration.
Instructions are given for both knit in the round and knit flat so choose whichever method you are most comfortable with.
There are plenty of stage by stage photos of both the lace pattern and the flower construction if you need them.

I've crafted all my life. I learned to knit and sew at about the age of 4 and haven't looked back. I made my own wedding dress, and I spent many happy years as a designer/tutor for UK papercraft companies and I have written magazine projects for papercraft. knitting and sewing. Now happily retired, I spend most of my time crafting! :)
