Lollylob is a hat replete with romantic finials and deep, furrowed cables. Sporting a modern, slim ribbed brim, this thoughtful combination of twining cables both thick and thin is a truly unique twist on a classic accessory. Instructions are both written and charted, delivering a stunning hat that is accessible and alluring. Knit from brim to crown in Arbor and all your work will shine with three-dimensional texture and crisp stitch definition highlighting each whorl; alternatively, work Lollylob in Dapple for a softer, gentler look.
