This hat is knit flat, partially sewn up at the crown using the Mattress technique (explained in the pattern) and then laced up on the side like a corset. This fun yet classy hat is soon to become your favorite! Incidentally, the name “Laces Out” is a reference to the hilarious movie Ace Ventura Pet Detective.
To make this hat you will need about 175 to 200 yards of Worsted weight yarn.
I used Malabrigo Merino Worsted yarn in the color Sauterne. I also found that Lion Brand’s Cotton Ease yarn yields very nice results for this hat as well.
You will also need a tapestry needle to sew the top part of the hat with and some yarn, cord or ribbon to lace the hat up with in the final step.
