Thank you Gaynell and Mike for the name!
I used ribbon yarn this time......first time I've worked with it and I was amazed at how soft it was. I like that this pattern showcases the sheen of the yarn. I used Sundance Plaza yarn, but any 5-weight yarn would work well with this pattern. The pattern can easily be adapted for different weight yarns and different sizes. Just work with increases or decreases of 8 stitches at a time.
The pattern may also be found on Scribd.com as a PDF . Please do not post in comments about problems you are having printing. I have emailed literally thousands of PDF's to people who request them.........just ask!
Enjoy this pattern. Please stop by our Facebook page and like us. Follow along as we make a difference and learn about new hat patterns as soon as Schnapps and I finish them.
