The CALOTTA hat pattern is a fast and fun knit, perfect for a little spring or summer hat. Having these wonderful pastel colors in Milburn DK ( by Eden Cottage Yarns) in my stash, I was looking for a matching pattern. Isn’t it stunning, how 15% of shimmering silk can make the difference!

There is a seamless transition from ribbed brim to lace pattern and the crown decreases are part of the pattern too. The CALOTTA hat is worked up quickly, satisfying to knit and to wear.

Use neutral pastel colors, tonal/ solid or variegated / gradient. The pattern is so addictive, I could not resist to knit two hats in one go!

You can find the Pastella hat pattern here: Pastella

The pattern is worked in the round from the bottom up. The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
