New pattern: Scalloped Lace Hat!

I had the pleasure of kntting this cute little hat with one of my favorite yarns, which has recently been discontinued. This hat is a tribute to the wonderful Lamb’s Wool, designed by Elsebeth Lavold.

Materials:
DK weight yarn (I used Elsebeth Lavold’s Baby Llama)
Size 6 16″ circular needles
Size 6 dpns
Tapestry needle

–PATTERN–

CO 88 sts, join in the round (DISCLAIMER: This yarn had a lot of stretch; if the yarn you are using is not super stretchy, increase amount of stitches in multiples of 11).

Ridged Feather Stitch Pattern: (taken from my faithful Knitter’s Bible by Claire Crompton)
Row 1: knit all sts
Row 2: knit all sts
Row 3: *(p2tog) twice, (yo, k1) 3 times, yo, (p2tog) twice; rpt from * to end of rnd
Row 4: knit all sts

Repeat stitch pattern four times.

Next 2 rnds: knit all sts
Next rnd: purl all stitches

Next, knit all rnds until hat measures 6 1/2 inches from cast-on edge.

Decrease:

Row 1: (k9, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 2: knit all sts
Row 3: (k8, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
Row 4: knit all sts
Row 5: (k7, k2tog), rpt to end of rnd
