Dulcie is a Hat that has received so many compliments from knitters all over the world. “versatile” and “flattering” are two words I hear again and again!

Dulcie is worked flat with short-row shaping. The reverse-stocking stitch is perfect for showcasing handdyed or handspun yarns, and the rolled brim gives Dulcie a very relaxed, chilled look. Note that I strongly recommend checking your row gauge before starting.

This Hat was designed as a one skein project when the recommended yarn came in larger skeins; you will need approximately 100-125g of heavy DK or Worsted weight yarn.

Fit is determined by row gauge – if your gauge differs, simply work more or fewer panels to achieve the desired size.

Please note that if you buy the single pattern then decide to buy the book, no discount or refund will be given.
