Alert Knitter Debbie pointed out that the pictured hat did not match the chart on the pattern page, and that the gauge would be wrong for the listed length. She is absolutely correct, so here is a revised chart, with 64 rows.
I am very sorry for the error.
This hat was inspried by the snowflake mittens in the book Small Sweaters, by Lise Kolstead and Tone Takle). I knitted it with handspun yarn, but you can substitute heavier fingering weight or lighter sport weight commercial yarns (whatever will give you the right gauge). The hat should fit most ladies (depending on the elasticity of your yarn), but you can make it wider by adding another stitch or two to the vertical borders (there are 6 repeats, 2 more sts per vertical border will add just under an inch to the circumference). If you want the hat longer, you can work more rounds of the lower border before beginning the snowflake.
