The hat starts off with a very neat long tail tubular cast on (photo tutorial included) and a tall ribbing which can be folded in half for a more fitted beanie look. The rest of the hat is easy lace with crown decreases hidden in the lace pattern. Hold together two strands of yarn - mohair/silk and cashmere - for an interesting texture and a luxurious feel.
