Lace weight yarn creates a lightweight hat, less likely to result in the dreaded “hat hair.” This pattern uses two strands of lace weight for the ribbed brim only, then a single strand for the rest. A slipped-stitch pattern using a contrast color mimics the hidden floats that are sometimes worn on the outside as “reverse fair isle.”

Sample shown in color Center Stage (MC) & natural (CC).
