Forestry is a lightweight beanie, ideal for spring and summer or warmer climes.

The lace pattern grows out from the brim and gently works its way towards the crown, where the shaping is elegantly worked into the lace pattern. The brim is reminiscent of the base of trees, the trunks, the body lace pattern reflects the branches and the crown detail is like the tips of the trees, delicate and whimsical.

The yarn adds to the delicate nature of this Hat – the semi-solid colourway allows the lace to stand forward and the fibre content enhances the shape and texture.

With one skein you can knit 2 or 3 of these Hats!
