Lucy Lightfoot , a delicate, lacy beret style hat is the first in the Island Gothic Collection.

This collection of accessories is inspired by the tales of people and places on the Isle of Wight that I grew up with. Stories of love and loss, murder and unexplained disappearances, that may or may not be true…

This beret-style hat is knit in the round, in a combination of lace and twisted stitches.
