Paravel is a sweet little hat worked in fingering weight yarn. Panels of easy broken rib are separated by columns of Totem Pole lace, a traditional stitch pattern. The crown is shaped in graceful quadrants that meet in a tidy little quatrefoil. The pattern includes both a beanie and slouch version. The beanie is a trim little hat and sits nicely like an acorn’s cap. The slouchier version has deeper ribbing at the edge and sits at a more relaxed angle.
