Little Petals a simple lace hat designed with beginner level lace knitting techniques. The hat also introduces you to a new style of a loom knitted brim: the Picot edge brim/cuff. The Picot edge brim gives the hat a feminine whimsical touch. The project is perfect for a first time lace project. I recommend choosing a smaller gauge loom to show the delicate stitch detail.
Lace pattern is charted and each row of the chart is written with detailed step-by-step instructions.
