This pattern is also available in the Textured Knit Hats Pattern Bundle, along with the Bramble Hat and Seeded Rib Hat, for $12.00.

The slipped and cableded stitches in this pattern form a tessellated design of pointed ovals which smartly nestle together. The stitch pattern is relatively simple and easy to follow yet makes the hat an impressive gift. Choose a smooth, solid-colored yarn to highlight the raised stitch pattern.
Make the Bas Relief Mitts and Bas Relief Cowl for a matching set.
