Lena Hat by Gina House

Lena Hat

November 2009
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
6.5 stitches and 9 rows = 1 inch
in lace pattern for hat
US 4 - 3.5 mm
140 - 150 yards (128 - 137 m)
woman's small (20"), medium (21") and large (22-23")

A saucy little number that is more like a beanie than a hat. It is COMPLETELY reversible and also looks splendid with the Chimera flower (another of my designs) added to one side. This design is a perfect, alternate use of sock weight/fingering yarn.

See my book, “Sleepy Eyes Knits: Dreamscape”, for beautiful, antiqued versions of these pictures!

(The lovely model for this pattern is KMurphy4 on Ravelry, if you want to send her a note!)
