This hat is so cozy with its double brim with that touch of cashmere. The ribbed brim is worked like a folded hem, so you have a beautiful, seamless edge. Its double layer is sure to keep your ears warm.

The body of the hat is worked in a simple lace pattern of leaves. This time of year the trees changing their colors is so inspiring to me, and this is apparently coming out in my designs lately. ♥

The rapid decreases create such a beautiful crown on this hat, continuing the leaf theme all the way to the top.
