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 , Ko-fi Shop, or Ravelry Store
Fans of my Lotus Mandala designs will recognize the central motif of this pretty hat!
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!
