PATTERN MAKEOVER TIME!
With the temperatures steadily climbing and the humid Indiana weather getting predictably stickier, I thought it was high time I revisit my pattern for this sweet, breezy lace cap! I put out the Filigree Lace Cap pattern over a year ago, after which I rapidly learned a lot about layout and photo editing – so now you can get the made-over version of this awesome summer slouchy hat in my Etsy Shop or Ravelry Store for 5.50 USD.
An elegant, feminine cap perfect for gathering wayward locks away from one’s face in warm weather; or work it in fine wool to keep damp hair covered during freezing temperatures.
This pattern uses 1 skein of Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour, a #2 weight acrylic yarn, to create a dainty floral-motif lace hat that can be worn as a renaissance-style snood (for covering hair) or as a perfect slouchy beanie for summer. This unique hat is versatile, useful, and so darn cute!
Hook Size: 3.25 mm
Yarn Weight: #2
Yardage: About 150 yds (less than 1 skein LB Vanna’s Glamour)
You may have noticed that there’s a new face here – I was very excited to work with Lainy Clayton, a friend and fellow fiber enthusiast, as a model for this pattern. We took advantage of a beautiful Saturday this past weekend to go to the woods and photograph some different designs of mine, so you’ll be seeing more of her in the future!
A word on my pattern updates…
I’ve been making an effort recently to revisit some of my older patterns and update the layout, as well as reviewing anything that might need a tweak or two. These updates have also included price re-adjustment – my goal is to have all patterns reviewed and priced at 5.50 USD (a uniform pricing structure) by midsummer. For some patterns, this means the price gets raised, for some it will get lowered. This structure it will make it much easier for me to offer bundle deals (BOGO, 3 for the price of 2, etc) through all my selling platforms. Overall I think it will be a better deal for my customers – so make sure you follow my blog, like me on Facebook, or favorite my shops so you know when those awesome pattern bundles start appearing!
