Is Castiel casually elegant or elegantly casual? One thing is for sure - this Hat has its feet firmly planted on the ground, despite the lacy columns. It is named after the Angel of Thursday - which probably makes it an everyday Hat that is a bit special!

Castiel is worked bottom up in the round and is available in four sizes.

Diese wunderschöne Spitzenmütze, nach dem Donnerstags-Engel aus der Fernsehserie „Supernatural“ benannt, ist gleichzeitig weichfallend und filigran. Schnell gestrickt und gutaussehend − genau das Richtige zum Verschenken!

Das Spitzenmuster entwickelt sich harmonisch aus dem Bündchen über den Hauptteil bis zum Oberkopf mit raffiniert ins Muster integrierten Oberkopfabnahmen.

Die Mütze wird von unten nach oben in Runden gearbeitet und kann in vier verschiedenen Größen gestrickt werden.
