Simple Lacy Hat

I'm especially fond of the bitchface in the center.


Please enjoy all the awkward photos I took trying to model this hat for you. I took them all myself! I'm excited to share this hat with all of you zero people that read this blog.

I named this a simple hat, but it was born of something more complicated. I initially tried to make this a chevron hat but it didn't work out the way I wanted. However, I still like the idea so keep an eye out for something similar in the future ;)

This hat is slightly lacy, but still very easy to follow. It fits my adult-sized head and also my preteen nephew's. It can also be adjusted but adding or removing 15 stitches from the cast on number. You can also make it slouchier by knitting it a few inches longer than suggested. Patterns are meant to be guidelines; it's always great to change it up and add your own style. If you'd like a downloadable version please visit the Ravelry page for it, or download here.
