This unique and stunning hat is really something special. Named after a tall climbing rose, the lacy design twists and rambles up the body of the hat.
We've knit it up in Laura by Gedifra creating a light and frothy, almost ethereal effect. Using a tubular cast on, the wide brim is knit in 1x1 rib with the body and crown knit in the lacy pattern.

Note: You don't have to use a tubular cast on if you don't wish to go to the trouble. The tan, grey and blue hats are knit using a regular cast on. The pink sample has the tubular cast on.
