Lemon Whimsy Hat
The Lemon Whimsy hat is inspired by cupcake decorations. Fanciful stitch work above the brim recollects icing garlands while the polka dots on the upper body are evocative of sprinkles. Colour choices are intended to give the hat a sense of fun maturity and amplify its bolder graphic elements, although any contrasting mix of neutral and neon will achieve the same effect. It’s also a exciting project, utilizing a combination of stitch work and stranded colour work to keep the knitter from growing bored. The hat itself has a bit of slouch and will comfortably fit most adult women.
Finished hat will be approximately 27.5cm/10.63”inches tall and will fit a womens/unisex teen 52cm-58cm/20”-23”inch head.
