Description Jenny just knit the Francisca Hat from the Knitscene Winter 2011 issue, and she loves it! So do we - the lace and cable panels are certainly eye-catching, and the beauty of the hand-dyed Madelinetosh Tosh DK Jenny used really shines out! To get a tighter fit than the original pattern, Jenny subtracted one pattern repeat (doing 5 instead of 6 repeats total), and went down a needle size (using sizes US 4 and 6 instead of the US 5 and 7 called for in the pattern).

Hopefully this project description inspires you to start something new! You can view the project photos below.
