Ios - $5 via Ravelry (no account required)
Ios (Ancient Greek for dawn) is a lightweight beanie with a simple lace brim and just the least bit of slouch. The hat begins with the chevron-like lace brim that my brilliant son invented, which is knit flat, then folded in half to create its three dimensional appearance. The rest of the hat is worked up from the brim with the yarn held double stranded (so soft and squishy), and I've provided a little photo tutorial for picking up stitches from the doubled lace brim. This is a very quick knit that is a perfect use of a single skein of soft laceweight yarn and provides just the right amount of warmth on chilly mornings, as rosy-fingered dawn is making her appearance.
