skills include:
Circular knitting (pattern assumes the use of a circular needle with magic loop for crown decreases, but is easily adapted for your preferred circular methods)
Basic lace knitting skills (yarn overs/ paired decreases etc)
This hat needs blocking to achieve the shape shown and open the lace.

Both written and charted instructions. Links to tutorials for the cast on and blocking methods. Full metric and imperial measurements.
