Full of beautiful detail, Koru is a light, feminine hat with a slightly slouchy shape that’ll show off your most gorgeous DK yarn.

The lace and cable panel grows effortlessly from the twisted rib brim and is reminiscent of New Zealand’s baby ferns, delicate and gently uncurling.

Subtle, textured stripes add elegant detailing to the body of the hat and give your hat a stylish twist.

Koru is a pattern perfectly suited to experienced knitters and those eager for a challenge.

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions with links to step by step photo instructions. 

Pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited.
