Colorful and sculpturally interesting flower blooms served as an inspiration for the Aster hat. The tiny sculpted leaves that make up the blossoms are formed by a simple spiraling lace stitch while the decreases mirror the actual flower centers.
This pattern is versatile because it can be sized to fit any adult or child head circumference by simply adding or subtracting appropriate number of pattern repeats; infant and baby sizes can be attained with the use of a thinner yarn and smaller needles. Besides the classic close-fitting hat shape, Aster can be also blocked to form a beret.
Yarn alternatives are Patons Classic Merino, Rowan Calmer and RYC Cashmere Tweed.
