Pattern Update April 2010
It has come to my attention that there is an error in row 3 of the crown section of the pattern (thanks so much mcspanna for letting me know!). The pattern has been corrected and is available for download again.

Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what Cayenne is made of.

I’m hopelessly addicted to both knitting hats and lace so what could be better than to combine the two into a fun and funky accessory to lighten up the cold weather blahs.

Cayenne is a quick and relatively easy knit and I love the idea of a hat you can tighten and tie on tightly so the nasty north wind can’t blow it away.

The hemp yarn adds great color and texture in combination with the lace and will soften up with wear.

So what are you waiting for? Crank up the spice with out burning your mouth!
