The soft tonal depth of our Lilac colourway comes alive in the textural stitches of this sweet little hat, aptly named Lilac Petal. It’s knit in our Bulletproof Sock for the perfect hint of texture and light sheen. Like the wind that lifts the petals into the air, eyelets sprinkle across a palette of ribbing make for an effortless spring accessory.
My goal for this hat was “quick,” but it couldn’t be plain. It had to be something with soft texture that engages just long enough so as not to be boring. Lilac Petals hits the mark in those categories, providing just the right balance of lace to smooth knitting, promising an easy knit that is perfect for lace beginners.
