A great, DK weight hat is perfect for lots of climates. This hat is both light and lacy, yet graphic and hip. The pattern flows seamlessly from beginning to end, starting with the double brim (folded under or over depending on your preference) through the zigzag lace and into the fun star motif that formed by the decreases. Looks great worn tight to the head as a beanie, or with an extra repeat for a casual, slouchy fit.
Pattern is completely charted with written instructions as well.
