Sola is a quick, easy little tam that makes a great gift (or gift for yourself!) and is an excellent way to cleanse your knitting palette. It's perfect for early spring, when you still need a hat on a crisp, windy day, but not perhaps the huge wool cap that's been giving you "hat head" all winter. Add a bright, springy color, and you can feel ready to step into the next season - without getting cold. The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner lace knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted.
