    • The Hat by The Plucky Knitter – hat recipe using 2 light fingering/lace held together. Used Spiffy lace (63% cashmere goat, 37% silk) in Gumshoe and halo (100% cashmere goat) in galvanized. I used a rolled brim and knit 8.75” then cinched it up. Fits pretty well, although I’m afraid of it stretching over time.
