The finished hat has a lovely, detailed eyelet, lace, and cabled design. The top of the cap is designed to come together symmetrically in a starburst design. Once knitted, this hat is a perfect three-season item.

Pattern includes comprehensive chart, detailed written instructions, suggestions, and color photos.

This pattern is a perfect option for any knitter who knows some intermediate techniques of knitting, such as: k2tog, ssk, yo, a simple cable, and knitting in the round. No prior experience needed of making hats since this pattern gives detailed, step-by-step instructions. You will need a PDF viewer installed on your computer to download the file.

I use up one skein of the above-named yarn in creating this item, but I like to have an extra skein on hand in case of slight gauge differences, or in case of any minor fiber flaws.
