Sleepless Nights Hat Pattern
This pattern can be worked up very quickly and helped me hide the fact that my hair was a mess since I couldn't fall asleep the night before. The lace is simple and easy to work. the lines of the hat are gorgeous and would be even crisper if worked in an acrylic or non single ply yarn. Look your best even when you feel like a zombie.
- Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Patons Soy Wool Stripes
- Size 8 circulars and/or dpns
- Tapestry needle
- Stitch marker to indicate beginning/end of row
Tip: If you are new to lace you may want to put stitch markers between each repeat or weave a cord in every few rows so that if you make and error you can frog it back to the cord and not lose all your progress.
Cast on 81 stitches and Join in the round
Do 1/2" to 1" of K1 P1 ribbing. (You will both begin and end with a K1 but this isn't noticeable. If you prefer you can cast on 80 stitches increasing one stitch on the first pattern row)
