“Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness.” Katherine Henson

Designed to match the cowl pattern of the same name, the Soft-Hearted Hat is a lightweight but cosy accessory, combining single-round stripes in garter stitch with slipped stitches and a small amount of lace. This patterning creates a gorgeously satisfying texture, which swirls around the hat, making it an interesting and intuitive knit.
