Feste Hat PDF
The Feste Hat from Lyrical Knits is a stranded colorwork hat inspired by the brocade fabrics of the Elizabethan Period as well as a costume worn by actor Marc Rylance in his performance in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Using the same colorwork pattern as the Twelfth Knit Cowl, worked entirely in the round from the bottom-up, this festive hat has a folded ribbing to frame the face and keep your ears extra warm. A pom pom and a lot of slouch make the hat both fashionable and fun.
