I made lots of mistakes and almost swore this off as too difficult (many times). I’ve knitted in the round before and I’ve knitted lace, but never lace in the round. It was daunting.
After I got over my initial fear and put in a few lifelines (um… these are life changing), however, things moved along pretty quickly. It’s a super fun pattern and I’m so glad I tried it out!
I made the medium size, but made the brim about half the size as the pattern called for, so it wouldn’t be slouchy. If you ever make this pattern, bear in mind that it runs on the small size. Oh, and blocking this hat is a definite must—it really helps the lace open up.
Thanks to Izzie for choosing a great pattern! What a fun knit-along!
