This hat is based on a traditional Shetland lace pattern known as razor shell. It's sharp no matter what style of sock yarn you use; semi-solid, space-dyed, or hand painted. There are two sizes to knit, but four sizes in effect - the hat can be blocked larger or left unblocked and smaller. It is knit in the round from the brim up to the crown. Both written and charted instructions are included. The pink hat is a large & blocked; the green is large & unblocked, and the navy multi is small & blocked. The stitch pattern is well defined, so the blocking decision is strictly based on your size preferences.

Color, shape, and texture endlessly inspire me. For several years, I’ve been wholly consumed by knittingbecause it’s so forgiving, so flexible, and so free to the imagination. It also fits neatly into spare pockets of space & time, which makes it accessible to me, as designer, knitter, and mother of two busy little girls. I design the majority of what I knit, and self-publish the majority of it via Ravelry and here on Craftsy. The exceptions have been published in Interweave Knits Accessories 2011, Sanguine Gryphon, and with a Calgary-centric yarn club.
