I’ve always loved cacti– even as a small child, I’d beg my mother to let me have a cactus in my room. She always refused, probably (rightfully) cautious of what a troublesome combination my clumsiness and a cactus’ spines would be. As soon as I moved out to college, I got my first cactus, and it still has a cherished spot in my indoor garden.
I also really love lace at large gauges. Gimme a bulky or super bulky-weight lace knit and I am in my happy place. So when I got this bright skein of Berkshire Bulky, I instantly wanted to do a fun lace accessory- a statement knit, but a wearable one. Of course, the color made me think of cacti, and this hat grew from there.
Obregonia is a bulky lace hat that works up quickly. The large-gauge lace is fun and engaging, and as always the pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
