den Arend’s striking feature is the spiraling panel of cables working its way down to the brim. This is a top-down hat that can be made to any length; the spare design makes it a unisex pattern. The yarn color, I believe, is what makes this hat masculine or feminine.
The third picture down is the Dutch artist Lucien den Arend, who commissioned me to make 2 hats for his family!
The last 2 pictures show modifications to the original hat design: a longer body made by continuing the increasing cable pattern into the body and balancing the body out, and a garter stitch brim.
