This pattern is in collaboration with Malabrigo Yarn for Quickies.
Reina is a very quick feminine slouchy hat worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom up with a lovely lace motif.
The pattern is available in four sizes to fit average baby, child and adult woman.
The hat is designed to use one skein of Malabrigo Silky Merino, but you will need an extra skein for adult sizes to make your giant pom pom!
The pattern is available in both written and charted directions with optional short row shaping.
