Designed by Melissa LaBarre, and knit out of Peridot, a vibrant color of Road to China Light, this hat begins with a classic 1 x 1 rib that transforms into a beautiful leaf lace panel pattern after a round of increases for the body of the slightly slouchy tam. The decreases at the top form an integrated star motif.

We both learned to knit as kids from our grandmothers, and we just never stopped! Although we own a yarn company, and knitting is our main passion, we both sew, cook, crochet, needlepoint, and draw.
