Rose Lace Slouchy Free Knit Pattern

 This lacy slouchy hat is so light weight and perfect for any occasion. I actually made this hat for a family member fighting cancer and she loved it! So, this would be a great chemo cap knit pattern! I love this look in a variegated yarn, but the lace pattern would shine in a solid as well. The repeats are fun and keep it interesting! I hope you enjoy this hat!
