A lovely clover lace pattern is the basis for a slouchy beret-style hat. Its easy-to-memorize lace pattern makes for a very simple and elegant one-skein gift.

Knit it up in a luxurious and drapey Merino Silk Aran or a lush and cushy Superwash Worsted yarn.

So named “Ballard” since I started knitting this during the border crossing (90 minutes) on my way to the Earthues Natural Dye Studio in Ballard, Seattle, WA.

2-page PDF pattern includes both charted and written directions.
