Kalmia is a slouchy hat or a beret ideal for transitional weather. It is worked in a floral lace pattern that flows seamlessly up from the ribbing section. The elasticity of the ribbing allows the hat to fit a large range of adult sizes; for children, the hat could be easily worked in a thinner yarn on smaller needles.

The hat is shaped through the simple increases and decreases in the lace pattern. Knit with only 200 yards (a single skein of Malabrigo Worsted), Kalmia is a fun and quick project and a perfect stash buster.

Alcea, a matching crescent shawlette, is available here:
