“This is a variation of my Pylon pattern that I designed in 2012. It’s been adapted to hand knitting, so the strands taken across the back are shorter and therefore easier to work. This hat is worked in the round. The contrast colors are intended to create a gradient effect by using two shades of a single color.”
