Sparkling Cider is a relaxed cloche, knit from ribbing to crown. It’s knit holding together both my Wolke and Ghost Lace yarns, to create a buttery-soft fabric with the fluffiest of halos. The hat also features a simple cabled pine tree motif. Each tree may be “topped-off” with a bead to add a subtle, festive sparkle. Of course, beads may be omitted if you choose.

It’s a super quick knit, making it a perfect holiday gift for someone special … or even for yourself!
