With Cream, I wanted to take the basic ribbed hat the Ali McGraw wore in the 1970s and give it a more feminine, modern spin. It's an update on the basic fisherman-wool ribbed/cabled cap.
I picked Plucky's Primo Sport - which is a delicate, soft merino, and used Milkmaid, a subtle cream shade with hints of yellow as a nod to the traditional fisherman yarn off white that was in my mind when I thought this one up.
And then I played with ribs and lace until I found this - a lovely off-kilter lace pattern that reminds me of ribbing but is much more interesting, and naturally leads into a beautiful crown decrease.
If you want to play with width or depth on this hat, you can, and instructions are in the pattern.
Sample is in Plucky Primo Sport. Other listed yarns are suggested substitutes.
