A Leaf Falls


A Leaf Falls is a cute hat with a delicate leaf lace pattern. The plumpness of the garter stitch underlines the lace, creating a beautiful balance between softness and finesse. Comfortable to wear, this hat will suit a baby’s head as well as an adult’s. And if you feel like it, there are instructions to knit a matching cowl too! Choose a really smooth yarn to show off the subtlety of the pattern, or on the contrary a slightly fluffy one to add some lightness to it… as you like it. And you can even add a cute pompom on the top! In fact, if you take a look at the Ravelry page of the pattern, you will find some really cute creations.

To achieve the best look and the most pleasant fit, we recommend to choose a size with a negative ease of 2 cm. But the stitches that are used allow a negative ease up to 5cm.
