Cuyahoga Canals is a close fitting hat with unusual construction. Two bands are knit flat, then twisted around each other and joined in the round. The neat parallel rows created by the twisted rib pattern highlight the curves created with blocking. Stitches are picked up along the edge of the band and the top of the hat is completed.
