Playful Plumage Hat is a textured lace hat designed to show off gorgeous hand dyed yarns and keep you toasty warm for the winter. Ever since I designed my Playful Plumage shawl, I knew that I wanted to use the stitch for a hat and am so happy with how it translates to worsted weight yarn.
As an added bonus, I have included directions on how to make a fitted neck cowl also. If you would like a longer eternity scarf, you can easily add stitches and/or repeats.
Hat & cowl can be worn unblocked or blocked depending on how you prefer to wear it. Measurements have been included for both versions.

I first picked up a pair of needles in 2007 and became smitten immediately. It was as if this new, creative world just opened for me. Aided by my cat Ralph, who loves to lay on my blocking FOs, I started LeftSideKnits, as an outlet for my love of knitting. I began experimenting with designing in 2010 and it has quickly become my true love.
You can find me on Ravelry as LeftSideKnits.
