Silver Maple Hat
Designed by Amy Gunderson
Lightweight and open, the Silver Maple Hat makes a lovely multi-season accessory. It’s warm and cozy, yet the lace opens the fabric up just enough for wear throughout autumn and spring. One of our favorite things about Bella Cash is its sublime stitch definition. It’s an excellent match for lace, cables, and everything in-between – making it perfect for ths project. The patterning on this hat will hold the attention every knitter – offering lots to learn for beginners and plenty of interest for more advanced knitters.
This hat is knit in the round from the bottom up. Switch to dpns when there are too few stitches to fit on the needle during crown shaping. For your convenience, this pattern is both written and charted. You may wish to place stitch markers between each pattern repeat to help you stay on track.
