SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!

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.

Approximately 400 yards of worsted weight yarn total
200 yards for hat & 200 yards for cowl

1 US size 5 (3.75 mm), 16-inch circular
1 US size 7 (4.5 mm), 16-inch circular

Stitch marker for marking beginning of round

20 sts/31 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on US size 7 needles
