Samarah is a loosely knit, dk weight hat that knits up quickly and beautifully. The lace is easily memorized and simple for beginners, yet satisfying enough for advanced lace knitters. Cozy up your noggin with the luxurious Malabrigo Silky Merino, which provides incredible stitch definition and will help you to create a beautiful new hat.
A thought on yarn: this pattern uses all but approximately 10 yards of 1 skein of Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino. You might consider having a second skein on hand just in case or if you are a gauge swatch knitter.
