Say hello to your new favourite hat! Harmonium hat combines perfect elements to create a light and drapey hat that you will never want to take off. For a real lacey treasure, use luxury yarns with a bit of fuzz and sparkle.

This delicate stitch is easy to memorize and is simple enough for knitters who are new to lace knitting. Choose from either a slouch or beanie style.

This hat is knit from the bottom to the crown with a fingering weight alpaca yarn and a lace weight mohair yarn held together double stranded. This hat has three sizes and no visible seam.
