Kilbride is an exploration in garter stitch lace, texture and structure, which finishes with an unusual crown shaping. Ideal for hand-dyed yarns, it will work just as well in something solid in colour.
Worked from the bottom up and available in 5 sizes, Kilbride will provide warmth for many heads.
Available as a single pattern or as part of the Painted Woolly Toppers for Kids collection.
