As fun to knit as it to wear, this textured hat includes a wrap-stitch diamond motif on the deep twisted rib brim. The design takes a different turn at the crown, where twisted stitches follow curved lines and form a starburst at the top. The extra fine merino wool adds wonderful definition to the stitch work.
