Ackert Hook Hat
Also Available as part of The Map Collection!
The Ackert Hook hat is worked from the top down, beginning with a fun flower pattern that grows from an invisible cast on. Increases and twisted stitches produce subtle stockinette petals against a seed stitch background. The long ribbed band provides a great place to put special buttons! Fitted and Slouchy lengths.
