Lace caps have become a new fun project because if you use a worsted weight yarn they're as functional (in keeping your head warm) as they are nice to look at. I used a purl decrease on this one just for a little something different visually, but I don't know that I'd do it again. Hats are great because they are easily completed in one sitting...I watched The Hangover and part of Inglorious Basterds (found in my stocking), did all of our laundry and made this hat last night. Hats are great stash busters, and a great way to try new stitches or skills. Have fun!

I was inspired by your lace hat knitting and busted out 2 Georgian lace hats for little girls on our gift list. Took about 5 frogs the first try before I finally slunk into a yarn store asking for help.... But overall fun, quick projects! Thanks!!

I did the same thing! I kept counting the stitches wrong, not counting the yo's as one of the 8 stitches in the repeat. I think it was on the third frog that I got it right!
