HEARTSY HAT comes with some lovely details that are a joy to knit. Bobbles are made with a crochet hook and my testers found them absolutely delightful. Little twisted cables are pretty intuitive too.
This pattern features a heart- shaped lace motif with bobbles which flows into an interesting crown.
I am not generally attracted to lace but this motif from one of Hitomi Shida’s stitch dictionaries held my attention for quite a while.
I guess it is one of those times you feel ‘artsy’ or ‘cutesy’ and I decided to yield and listen to what the heart says…so here is ‘Heartsy’! 🙂
