Version Two (V2) is now available! PDF has been updated.

This hat has some sweet but simple details: a picot brim, eyelets and a lacey crown. Choose from a slouchy style, or a beanie!

The picot brim is made with a provisional cast on which is then folded up and knit together. There is also an option for a “no-sew” picot brim, or, if you prefer, you can make a traditional roll or ribbed brim.

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown with a worsted weight yarn. This hat has one size (with instructions to adjust) and a slightly visible seam.
