Cairo Hat is a close fitting hat worked in a textured stitch pattern of moss stitch triangles evoking the monumental pyramids of Egypt. It is worked in the round from the bottom up with a brim of broken rib. The stitch pattern is simple enough for a beginning knitter that is ready to try following a chart, but at the same time keeps the work interesting for an intermediate knitter. Stitch patterns are charted.
