a new Carol Sunday hat


A knitted hat in an easy lace pattern that seems to weave in and out,
gyring and gimbling as slithytoves would do in the wabe.

Work it in one color, or add a color change every 4 rows for pure magic!

Perfect for self-striping yarns or for using up leftovers

A provisional cast on is used to create a pretty picot ribbed hem
