In my efforts to knit up some of those lonely, lingering single skeins of yarn in my cupboard, I came up with this hat to mark the first blooms of spring - the intrepid yet dainty snowdrop. Nudging themselves up in clusters from the softening earth, so here too, arranged on a hat that still keeps in the warmth but is just lacy enough to let the first spring breezes blow away those wintry cobwebs.
I made two versions of this hat with the same size needles, one is more fitted in a dk weight yarn (RYC's Cashsoft DK), the other has a more generous fit in a worsted weight (Cascade 220). Each version requires one ball of the stated yarns.
It is sized to fit 21" head circumference with 2" negative ease in ribbing and 3" ease around head before decreases.
