A sunburst pattern in a gloriously rich yellow colour is guaranteed to put a smile on your face every time you see this hat! The lace pattern is worked in a DK-weight merino yarn from Fyberspates, called Vivacious, which provides excellent stitch definition.
The pattern is written for three sizes; please note that different-sized needles will be required depending on which size hat you intend to make. This pattern also includes more information on how to create your own hat pattern.
