Warmer weather doesn't have to mean no more knit hats. Not when you can make this lace and cable knit version in a light weight cotton blend! This hat is knit from the bottom up in the round, so it's seamless and quick! A simple ribbed border transitions into a pretty combination of classic cables alternating with a beautiful intertwining leaves lace design. Reverse Stockinette stitch makes for a nice contrasting background stitch. Shaping at the cap is done with decreases that taper the lace leaf design and create a pretty floral effect at the crown. The hat is just a little slouchy, so it can be worn pulled down for those who like a closer fit, or a little bit back on the head, so it slouches just so. It will be one of your most versatile and easy-to-wear hats! And the bonus is that it only takes 2 balls of a very nice, yet inexpensive Shine Worsted yarn from Choose the sunny and yummy creme brulee color shown here or from the other delicious colors.
