Pattern Notes
The hat is knitted using both flat and circular knitting bottom up using cir needles. Magic Loop method is used to work the main section of the hat in the rnd.
First the back of the hat is knitted. Then stitches are provisionally cast on to work the upper section of the hat in circular knitting.
After the shaping of the hat, the stalk is worked in i-cord technique and the leaf, which is separately made, is attached at the end.
The provisional cast on is then unravelled to work the garter edging in cir needles to accommodate the edges.
