Whitecaps Hat - by Emily Wessel
A sculptural lace pattern reminiscent of ocean waves brings texture and movement to this hat. Instructions are given for several yarn weights, from sport to bulky weight, allowing you to knit this little lovely in your favorite yarn, no matter the gauge!
Finished Size: To fit average adult head, 20-22” in circumference. Finished hat is very stretched and soft, and can be blocked into a larger and slouchier shape if desired.
I suggest knitting this design in alpaca or alpaca-blend yarn for softness and drape, but any yarn will work beautifully!
