Bellis is a slightly slouchy hat, knit in the round from the bottom up. It has a ribbed brim and a plain stockinette body that is punctuated with tiny flowers. Bellis is the scientific name for the daisy, which is what this stitch reminds me of.

Pattern includes detailed instructions on how to make the flowers and options to customize the fit. It can be made bigger or smaller, and more fitted or slouchier.
