Icaro a Lace Hat
Icaro is a unisex lace hat. In Greek mythology, Icaro (Spanish spelling), Icarus (the Latin spelling, conventionally adopted in English; Ancient Greek: Ἴκαρος, Íkaros, Etruscan: Vikare) is the son of the master craftsman Daedalus. Often depicted in art, Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. This hat made of wool will keep you protected from the Sun and the cold wind. It can be a tam, a slouchy of plain beanie, I hope that you will discover your favorite style, then make one for you and one for a friend. This pattern was inspired by Barbara G. Walker Flame Ribbing Stitch Pattern.
