** PLEASE NOTE ** i managed to leave out a detail on round 17: you will remove your markers as you work! round 18 describes how to replace them.
Evangeline uses only one hank of worsted yarn and can easily be worked up on a weekend. The stitches are deceptively simple and easy to memorize as you work your way around. I’ve included notes on adding a tassel if you’d prefer it over the pom pom, but it’s lovely on its own without added frills. Please read the section about blocking and shaping hats – when you have stitch work this lovely it’s best to do everything you can to make those stitches sing. I absolutely love this hat and for once I’m looking forward to cooler weather this year!
