Combining a luscious mohair with a single ply merino this hat gets an ethereal effect while ensuring the desired lightness for the double layered “petals”.
Knitted top-down starting with a gathered crown, the construction proceeds with a body complemented by a corrugated border with shaped welts, and finally ending with a neat folded hem.
Softly shaped to be flattering on any type of face or hairstyle, with a vague visual reference to the roaring 20s, this relaxed beanie uses an easy pleating technique to produce three-dimensional petals above the brim to give structure to an otherwise rather loose body.
