Ode to Summer is the first in my series of seasonally themed hats. Ode to Autumn Hat is the second. Place both hats in your Ravelry cart for a bundle discount - no coupon code needed! If you already own Ode to Autumn, Ode to Summer will come up at an automatic discount!

Ode to Summer is a very stretchy hat that features a textured lace stitch as well as a lace flower panel that covers 25% of the hat. This hat will fit snuggly on the head of the wearer, and is fantastic for children as it stretches with growth!

Suggestions are included to create a slouchy hat as well.
