#140 Vintage Charmer One-Ball Hat
Pattern Gauge: Approx 10 sts = 3” 7.5 cm and 13 rnds = 3” 7.5 cm in Leaf Lace stitch.
Charm personified in a hat! This lovely lace hat is knit with just one-ball of incredibly soft chunky 100% baby alpaca yarn. It’s a quick project, knit seamlessly in the round, with lots of great details.
The leaf lace stitch is a pretty contrast to the 2x2 ribbing and works beautifully with the subtle color variations of this hand-dyed yarn. The button tab detail adds a whimsical accent. For the sample, instead of a button, I used a vintage shell buckle from my stash. The leaves on the buckle echo the lace pattern so nicely.
The hat is shaped at the top with just a little bit of slouch to give it a more modern fit! This is a very feminine hat that makes an ideal gift knit.
Special thanks to thehollytreedyeworks.etsy.com for sponsoring this pattern and sending me the gorgeous chunky baby alpaca!
