The Dancer is a delightful hat pattern that shows off the delicateness of Poppy Yarn & Fibre’s The Dance Lesson colorway. The shiny silk fiber of their Siena DK base is stunning with the stitch pattern.
Worked in the round, The Dancer contains written directions and charts. This hat pattern features 3 sizes; Small, Medium, & Large. The Dancer includes a hat worksheet, so you know how to measure your head to achieve a perfect fit. Notes for a hat with less slouch have been added to the pattern as well.
The Dancer is written to be worked on circular needles. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method. However, the pattern notes do contain details should you wish to use double pointed needles throughout instead.
