Hermaness Worsted was created for the Third Fringe Hatalong.

This hat begins at the brim with ribbing and is knitted bottom up in a simple Shetland Lace pattern. As you work the lace, you will notice that although the yarnovers and double decreases are stacked on top of each other in the chart, they will actually be leaning on a diagonal as you knit.
