This pretty tam was originally published in Knit On The Net magazine, and is now available as an individual pattern.

Inspired by Victorian caps, the lace droplet pattern circles around the Hat, creating an interesting concentric effect, with the shaping cleverly incorporated into the pattern.

Pattern is worked from the bottom up and includes charts for both the stitch pattern and the crown shaping.
