A light and lacy beret to shield you from the summer sun or warm you a bit on cool days. The lace motif reminded me of a butterfly’s wings, so I named the hat after the Apollo butterfly. Parnassius Apollo is an easy introduction to every round lace patterning, as the hat is worked in the round and there are no purl rounds.

This pattern is available in Finnish in the book Pipo on Pääasia by the name Apollo.
