The Cloudveil Dome hat is one of nine patterns in Independent Fabrication: Volume 2, a collection of accessory patterns in small-batch yarn. The print + eBook bundle is currently available for pre-order from Tightly Knit and Sandreed Press; the individual patterns and eBook-only options are available on Ravelry.

Combining a rhythmic, intuitive lace pattern with a two-ply wool yarn with just the right amount of structure, the Cloudveil Dome hat has enough slouch and movement for a flattering, relaxed fit and enough body to keep you warm on all but the coldest days. The bold, saturated colors of Jill Draper’s Mohonk base add a dramatic touch, while details like an optional tubular cast-on and an added pom pom finish the look.
