Dizzying! This hat features a short
introduction to simple colorwork (in the form
of corrugated ribbing) and then a terribly
easy stripe pattern that looks a lot fancier
than it is. A small change in gauge
encourages a touch of slouchiness, but
you could enhance that by blocking as well.
Decorative yarn-over decreases swirl
around the crown- combined with the
stripes, it looks a bit like a hypnosis spiral. I
think if you spin around fast enough, this
hat could hypnotize birds and low-flying
aircraft. I don’t recommend it, though.
