The Rian Hat has a cute turned, picot brim. A pretty lace and cable pattern adds texture, eyelets and a feminine detail. Worked in the round, from the bottom up, Rian is easily lengthened to a slouch style or worked slightly shorter for a more beanie style cap shape. I like the almost ruffled effect where the lace and cap shaping meet.

It was made over two evenings and the cables can easily be completed without a cable needle.

The matching Rian Cowl is also available in a set and as part of the Autumn Accessories ebook which features four patterns.
