Tracery is worked in the round with a simple cable and lace pattern. The 2-stitch wide „ropes” of the cables create an interesting lattice frame, the texture of the diamond shaped sections produces a beautiful 3-dimensonal surface. The stitch pattern creates a deep texture which looks good in dark colours.
Hat begins with an optional tubular cast on, the crown shaping is integrated into the pattern. Please note that the cable and lace pattern is charted only.
