'Shy’ is a interesting and not very difficult lace hat. It's knit in the round and has a sloppy, slouchy shaping.  It's a fast knit, because of the bulky yarn. The lace motif is built of simple triangles. (Sorry, no charts yet, but they will be added later.)

The pattern is based on a sts pattern of 14 sts, repeated 5 times. So you will cast on 70 sts. If that’s not enough, you add a pattern repeat and cast on 84 sts.

Or you can add an extra row to the sts pattern. Then you cast on 80 sts and start sts pattern (rnd 19) like this:  *yo, k6, s2k1 psso, k6, yo, k1 [5 times].
