This lightweight cap in three sizes (small/medium/large), features a reversible vertical lace and cable motif, allowing it to be worn long and slouchy or with a rolled or folded brim. Delicate and airy, it will tame hair on temperate but windy days; the openwork pattern shows off the halo of a fine luxury yarn, while still providing a surprising amount of warmth. The easy to knit pattern, worked entirely in the round makes an excellent first lace or cable project and a very portable knit to keep or give as a gift.
