Named after the Angel of Thursday, this beautiful lacy Hat is both slouchy and delicate. Quick to knit and gorgeous too, it's the ideal gift Hat!

Growing up from the ribbing in the brim, the lace panels gently adorn the body. The continuity continues through to the crown, as the decreasing is integrated into the lace pattern.

Worked bottom up and in the round, this pattern is available in 4 sizes.
