A garter lace edging makes this simple hat as special as the yarn it’s knitted from! Perfect for the whole family, and using just one skein of Koigu Kersti—or about 50 grams of your favorite dk or light worsted yarn.

The hat’s name is a little bit of a pun: my model is my daughter Grace, but I also like the way the garter lace curves gracefully around the wearer’s face.
