This hat was originally designed in 2013 for the Storied Yarns “A Yarn and A Tale” club, and is inspired by the young adult novel “Delirium” by Lauren Oliver. A cabled ribbing band transitions into a lace body of this slouchy hat, worked in aran or worsted weight yarn. This challenging knit is perfect for any occasion. You can also knit the accompanying Deliria Nervosa cuffs or mittens. Purchase both patterns to get 25% off.

Pattern is a three page pdf file, and uses charts - no written stitch directions are included.
