A lace tam with a complex appearance, but the lace motif is deceptively simple to produce, and the stitches are fairly easy to memorize. An ideal first foray into lace knitting.

The perfect honeysuckle pink yarn comes from Wool 2 Dye 4.

If you want a slouchier look you could easily knit another half or even a whole repeat of the lace motif before decreasing for the brim.

Design benefits the Honeysuckle Project, a breast cancer research fundraising project.
