Olives Chunky Lace Hat
To make a more close-knit and warmer hat for very cold days, knit a lining by picking up sts along the rib edge, once the hat is finished. The lining is knitted with a single strand of yarn.
The lace pattern is charted only.
You can also knit the hat in a summer version without the lining, in for example silk or cotton.
The pattern includes both a hat without earflaps from size 6 months to adult size M/L and a hat with earflaps from size 0 to 12 months. The baby hat with earflaps only has bobbles in the front, to avoid discomfort for the child when lying down.
