Lace hat pattern
I'm trying to find the perfect pattern to make a hat with my qiviut - something light and airy, elegant, but not frilly. Thin cables like Shedir would be OK (tho I already did Shedir and would prefer something new) but I think I want to do it a little lacy. Perhaps something that reminds me of the ocean, snow, or mountains - something that fits with Alaska. I've been googling but haven't found anything... I would prefer a free pattern because a) I'm broke after buying the yarn; b) I'm broke to begin with; and c) My very favorite projects are doubleknit hats, so I don't think I'd ever use a book of lace patterns again. Does anybody know of any I might have missed? I've founda couple, but I'm having a hard time picturing how they would turn out in black yarn.

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

Hey!
Quiviut is musk ox wool. It is collected either from where it has rubbed off/snagged naturally (such as on thorns) or by running the musk oxen past combs. They are not sheered. It is VERY warm, and VERY soft.
