Mint and Basil PDF
BabyCocktails brings you two hats in the Mint and Basil PDF, each a bit different than the other. The first is a classic cap with a 70s vibe - close fitting, worn low on the forehead and snug over the ears. The second is a modified slouch, not exactly a beret, but with that extra room for a modern shape. Both designs are written in 3 sizes, with directions for adjusting for other weights or yarns. The slouch can be also be altered for less or more “slouchiness” - so you can create a beret or a cap if desired. Both are good patterns for a beginner/advanced beginner. Please note the lace pattern in “Basil” is charted only.
This pattern is available as a PDF download.
