A downloadable knitting pattern for a pretty hat with lace pattern detail. This hat has been designed as a quick and easy pattern that could be knitted up in a wide variety of DK weight yarns. The Louisa Harding Ianthe that I have chosen is a smooth cotton/merino blend that has great stitch definition. Try to pick a yarn that will similarly show off the lace pattern to good effect.
