A delicate yarn calls for a delicate shape and this versatile Hat works both to glamorous effect. Worked flat, this piece is all in the finishing with fascinating folds and turns that turn simple garter stitch into a sculptural masterpiece.

Note - the construction of this Hat is tricky, I know, and the instructions for the construction are provided in diagrammatical form. All of the projects with photos have been finished correctly, and there are many notes there that may be of help. The Hat has also been discussed in my group, and that can be found here: - please do come and join in the discussion, ask questions, and share your tips!
