“This lace hat was inspired by my two favorite things about the fall: cool, crisp weather, and beautifully-colored leaves. Worked in either worsted or chunky Malabrigo, it is soft and warm, and perfect for covering your ears on blustery autumn days. The subtle variations in the kettle dyed yarn enhance the rustic leaf pattern.
This hat is worked from the top down, and the increases for the crown shaping are integrated into the lace pattern. The Leaf Lace pattern is the Openwork Leaf Pattern from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker, adapted to work in the round.”
