In Vancouver, having a hat tucked into your bag during the fall and winter months is a must. Knit up in Indigo Moons gorgeous 100% BFL, Heather will keep out a chill and keep you dry for those days you forget your umbrella.

Heather is a simple lace-paneled toque with a fetching curved garter brim. Wear it down low for a cloche-like style, or farther back for a
slouchy look. Using a light fingering-weight yarn held doubled ensures a luscious squish and helps to smooth out the appearance of hand-dyed yarns that might show too much variegation or pooling otherwise.

Please note that pattern calls for yarn to be held doubled throughout to meet gauge.
