Did you ever want to put a bee in your bonnet, er, a flower on your head? Lotus might be just the thing!

Knitting from the bottom up in the round, this hat highlights a special cable in the shape of a lotus and is the perfect showcase for a trendy faux-fur pom pom.

Pattern is sized for both women and men, with suggestions for making both a non-slouchy and also a slouchy version.

Circumference: 21 1/2 (24)“
Height (after turn-up ribbing): 7 (8 1/2)”

Yarn: Approximately 140 (200) yards of DK weight. Malabrigo’s Rastita #120 Lotus was used in the sample.
