Hi everyone :aww: I've been working on this hat for a while. I'm way more experienced with crocheting but since I learned how to knit with needles I just fell in love and I can't stop now :inlove: This is the first time I try knitting a really lacy and rather demanding pattern, and I have to say I'm very pleased and proud of myself for the results I'm getting. I thought I wouldn't be able to make it look as good as it looks! (I think? haha)

This hat can be found in Interweave Knits Accesories 2011. I'm using alpaca and I'm working with 2 skeins since only 1 skein seemed too thin and I wanted a bolder look.

Here's an overview:

Hopefully I'll be done tonight, and I'll post pictures of the complete piece if anyone's interested :D

Thanks for reading!! :muah:

Beautiful! Love the color and the lace work both. For a newbie, you're doing spectacular!

Can't wait to see the finished project.

Love the hat, and can't wait to see the FO! It's got to be SO soft, using the alpaca yarn.
