This soft, slouchy hat, features a deep ribbing that flows effortlessly into an alternating lace leaves and twisted cables pattern, giving the hat a lovely balance of textures whilst being fun to knit. The perfect accompaniment to kicking through crunchy Autumn leaves before heading to a cosy country pub. Add a bobble to the top to bring a fun element to this piece.
