The Daughter Hat
Every woman is someone’s daughter. This hat was designed to crown all daughters, daughters in law, surrogate daughters, the daughters of all those dear to you and all those women who were born daughters. Pair a beautiful jewel of a multicolured skein with a plainer yarn for maximum effect.
From the lovely braided two-colour cast on to the beautiful pattern on the crown this is a thing of gorgeousness.
Sizes Choose a size approx 5 cm (2 in) less than your actual head size for a snug fit.

Yarn choices You will need two DK yarns in with good colour contrast. To get a similar look use one plain yarn and one self-striping (but any multi-coloured yarn will be pretty). I used pure wool yarns by independent producers, but suitable alternatives are listed in both wool and acrylic. The adriafil and debbie bliss yarns listed are both self striping. Testers also found it possible to get gauge for this hat with worsted yarns and combinations of worsted and sport.
