Suilven Hat Knitting Pattern
A pretty hat with zigzag stripes of delicate lace. Lightweight and warm in alpaca yarn, this is a real treat to wear. Suilven is an iconic peak in the Scottish Highlands – the zigzags in the lace mirror its distinctive peaks. The lace pattern is easier than it looks, and working through the different rows in the zigzag pattern makes this an engaging and addictive knit. This pattern uses less than half a skein of yarn – so you should have enough for a matching Suilven Cowl too.
