Dulcie is a Hat that has received so many compliments from knitters all over the world. "versatile" and "flattering" are two words I hear again and again!

Dulcie is worked flat with short-row shaping. The reverse-stocking stitch is perfect for showcasing handdyed or handspun yarns, and the rolled brim gives Dulcie a very relaxed, chilled look. Note that I strongly recommend checking your row gauge before starting.

This pattern is available to purchase separately, or as part of the Going Straight collection.
