Inspired by beautiful spring florals, the Lily Hat takes advantage of the crisp stitch definition of our beautiful Vireo yarn. In this design, a bouquet of lace decorates the hat and spiral decreases create a lovely crown shaping. Wear this close to your head like a traditional beanie, or a bit loose for a more feminine appeal.
