This hat is knit bottom up, incorporating a classic lace stitch pattern.
The size made can fit small to medium-sized heads. However, a slight increase in the gauge will create a hat that can possibly fit bigger-sized heads.
16-inch Circular needles
DPNs (for the decrease rounds)
Because of the details of the stitch pattern, it is recommended that you use a solid-color yarn, or any yarn that can accentuate the lace-y stitch design. :)
5.5 sts x 5 rows = 1 inch in stockinette stitch
130 meters of DK weight
I've been crocheting and knitting on and off since 2008. I rediscovered and renewed my knit-/crocheting fervor after cleaning up my room during the holidays and discovering old balls of yarn. Buying new sets of hooks and needles helped too. :)
I also play with my Singer Premio once in a while and am now starting to fall in love with hand embroidery.
