Cornflower is a spring/autumn hat knit in an interesting stitch pattern of eyelets and elongated stitches that's actually very simple to work (watch the videos to see for yourself). It will keep your hair out of your eyes on blustery days, and thanks to the braided tie, it'll stay on your head too! Includes both written and charted instructions.

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THIS HAT, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER: - I can use the braided tie as a bracelet, to stop a door slamming, to tie up drooping plants, or for various other stringy purposes. - It gives people behind me in a queue something pretty to ponder. - I can use it as a pouch with a drawstring. - I can stick all manner of found objects into the tie. - I can tie it onto my coat / bag / wrist so I don(tm)t lose it! The number of hats I(tm)ve stuffed in my pocket & subsequently lost on walks doesn(tm)t bear thinking - It's lacy & textured at the same time. - It can be beribboned. - The tassels mirror the stitch pattern. Details make me happy. :) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting purling increasing decreasing GAUGE * 16sts / 20 rows over 10cm/4in in blocked ribbing. * 1 pattern repeat (18 rounds / 20 sts) is 7cm/2.75in x 7cm/2.75in when stretched.
