The 1950’s woman effortlessly blended femininity and practicality to create a style unlike any other in the 20th century.
Dainty Doris mimics the talent of those 50’s women; a beanie or slouch with elegant lace, simple enough for a time-poor housewife and mama to whip up.

Dainty Doris - Worsted comes written in 6 sizes (from small newborn to adult), and is written for 10ply/Worsted weight yarn.

Dainty Doris is constructed from the brim upwards, and is knit in the round.
It features a very beautiful, but very basic lace to make up the body of the hat.
The hat may be knit to beanie or slouch length.
