Named for the tiny Swiss mountain village where I spent a year abroad, Fidaz (say fee-dats) is a lovely and modern slouchy beanie. The chevron rib band can be folded up for a more fitted look. The lace pine cone pattern is quite easy to memorize and fun to work up. The pattern is both written and charted.
