We get loads of great reviews on this hat pattern! A pretty, lacey, border edge on hat, that is not too difficult to knit. Then on to the top, where it is all stockinette stitch. You finish with a few rounds of decreasing to complete the cap look for the hat. IT will not take too much time to knit this. This hat fits most people. Uses bulky weight yarns, knitting needles, US #9, in 16 inch circular form. Also a set of # 9 double points for top of hat. You will get rave reviews every time you wear this hat!
