Playful Plumage Hat is a textured lace hat designed to show off gorgeous hand dyed yarns and keep you toasty warm for the winter. Ever since I designed my Playful Plumage shawl, I knew that I wanted to use the stitch for a hat and am so happy with how it translates to worsted weight yarn.

As an added bonus, I have included directions on how to make a fitted neck cowl also. If you would like a longer eternity scarf, you can easily add stitches and/or repeats.
