Hideaway Hat begins with an optional tubular cast on and a wide band of 1x1 rib. The body of the hat is worked in an easy to work textured stitch pattern: the panels of the Dot Stitch pattern are divided by ribbed columns. The crown shaping is integrated into the stitch pattern. Hideaway Hat can be a good choice for men and women who prefer simplicity. The stitch pattern creates a deep texture and it looks good in dark colours.
