Cables meet lace in this warm but lightweight hat. Milkweed features a perfect pairing of cables and eyelets that create the appearance of soft, wispy milkweed seed pods, twisting against the wind. Narrow bands of simple lace are inserted between the plump eyelet cables. This pattern is charted and also includes written instructions.
