Delicate lace with a twist, the Calvaria Hat is a perfect Halloween project to keep all the family warm while trick-or-treating and will pair beautifully with the coordinating Calvaria Scarf and Cowl. Worked from the crown to brim with a relaxed fit, ribbing rounds can be easily added for a slouchy version. Four skull motifs are featured on each hat and the pattern is the same for all sizes. Yarn and needle size will determine each size, with the Small knit in fingering weight yarn, the Medium in DK and the Large in worsted weight yarn and corresponding needle sizes.

Coordinate your Calvaria Hat with a matching Calvaria Scarf/Cowl.
