Icing Swirl

Quick top-down hat with eyelets

A cute slouchy hat that knits up quickly in a bulky yarn. Featuring just enough lace detailing to keep things interesting, without requiring too much attention.

The hat begins at the top with a simple I-cord and is then joined in the round, increasing with columns of spiralling yarn overs. All of the shaping is worked at the centre back, perfectly gathering the extra slouchy fabric.
