A ring of curvy lace leaves contrasts with the clean geometry of the crown shaping in the Ensata hat. Flowing organically from the lace pattern, the all-over twisted rib gives structure and elasticity to this stretchy beanie. Ensata is knit in 4-ply fingering weight Peerie, for even more body and stitch definition.
Note: Gauge for this project changes considerably after blocking; please block your swatch prior to measuring to ensure correct sizing.
*32” circular needle can be used instead of 16” circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.
Note that this hat is sized to fit adult head sizes ranging from 19-23” [48-58.5 cm] circumference. The stitch pattern used is extremely stretchy. Although the unstretched dimensions for finished circumference appear small, the elasticity of finished fabric will fit the head sizes listed above.
