Here is my christmas present to myself, the teal Aira. I fell in love with the pattern because it reminds me of thick globby paint strokes. The pleats, lace, and picot edge are delicate but overall I think it has an unique artsy feel. It turned out a little bit large but I'm sure it has nothing to do with the pattern and everything to do with my loose knitting, but it drapes nicely so the size doesn't matter at all. If it grows bigger I can just weave some ribbon through the brim, maybe even neon yellow. I love it!
Pattern: Aira by Lily Kate France
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light
