The Laughing Minstrel Hat - designed by Kris Gregson (Digital Download)


This hat was designed for Eric Williams, a local musician of great talent and a wonderful sense of humor. The hat is floppy to accomodate a wide variety of hair styles. In addition, there is a draw string so it can be adjusted to almost any head size. It's knit on sport weight yarn so it's light, and the lace pattern allows for an airy feel. We used 3 balls of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino as it comes in a wide color pallette, is great to work with, and is machine washable! We've also worked it up in 1 skein of Hat Box from Mrs Crosby, as well as 2 skeins of Merino Mia from Prism Yarn. Suitable for the intermediate knitter, this hat will suit and flatter both men and women.
