LACY PANELS BEANIE
Soft, delicate, and understated—the perfect hat for so many different occasions. I think that once you’ve knitted this hat, worn it—and gracefully received all the compliments—you’ll want to knit it in a whole range of colors. I’ve used a gentle shade of lavender—but this hat will look fabulous in whatever shade you pick.
