Lace Beanie Reviewed by Heather Nicely on 2015-05-28 ****
Like others who've tried this pattern, I switched to a 16" needle when I reached 72 sts. so I wouldn't have to deal with sts. falling off the ends of dp's. When I did the ribbing with #8 needles it was much too limp & wouldn't have fit a chemo patient comfortably. I re-did the ribbing with a #6 needle & it was better. Although I like Cotton-Ease yarn I found it rather "listless" for this pattern w/o the stretchiness that a design like this really needs.

I have made hundreds of these hats and give them to my daughter in law who is an RN on a chemo unit to disperse. I use two circular needles and can easily make a hat in my spare time over two nights.

I cannot figure out this lace to save my life. I've ripped out two times now. This is getting frustrating! Circular needles would have worked better I believe.

I love this hat. I've made 4 now and given them all to friends. Everyone loves them! Pattern is fun and easy to follow. It was a good challenge for me as a beginner knitter.

Gorgeous! I changed the brim to 6 rows of purl and knit it magic loop style on addi turbo sz 7 circular. Quite lovely. Another variation was a ruffled brim for a little girl. Super cute!

I have knit several of these beanies & wear them myself in cold weather. Attractive pattern & comfortable to wear.

The "grunge" lace on this hat is fun to knit. It knits up fairly quickly and uses less than one skein of yarn. It is a very soft and close fitting cap.

I have made this pattern a few times now. I keep coming back to it. Cotton yarn doesn't have the stretch and the memory as a wool yarn. I suggest knitting it with a merino yarn that would be soft to the bare skin and would stay close to the head. It knits up very nicely in wool or cotton. I have not made it in acrylic.

I also switched to circular needles when I had enough stitches that it was trying to fall off the ends of my dpns.

I really loved this pattern! would love someone to give directions for a children's version. This yarn is wonderful...and this pattern works up well in wool as well! I give it a 5 star rating!

I love this hat, but I'm not so sure it should be labled easy.
