Free Scallop Lace Hat Pattern!



Here it is... the perfect use for that single ball of DK-weight yarn that you've been meaning to knit. A classic lace stitch adapted into a slouchy, lacy hat.

This seemed so simple in theory but it took me a while (and quite a few proto-hats) to get the math exactly right.

The ribbing is knit with smallish (US 5) needles and the rest of the hat is knit with larger (US 10) needles for that drapey open fabric look... definitely more SoCal than Snowpocalyspe. Sorry Wisconsin homies, I'll get you next time.

This is beautiful. I love the color, too. I think I look horrible in hats, but I'm determined to knit one that "works". I may just have to try this and see if I can rock it. If not, I'm sure just about anyone I know would love it as a gift. Thanks for the freebie!

The hat looks lovely! Especially in the turquoise. (There's a good knitting needle conversion chart at http://www.laughinghens.com/knitting-needle-sizes.asp for those not in US who want to start knitting Right Now! )
