Anchored by a snug brim, the hat body is a bubble of openwork in a lighter-weight fabric; whether you choose a soft yarn for more slouch or one with some body is up to you. The lace stitch pattern is easy to master, making the cap a great project for lace newbies or knitters on the go. It’s also a fun and easy knit for squirreling away in the gift box.
