The Kipling hat is worked in the round using two colors and a slip-stitch pattern Waffles. Ribbed brim complements and accentuates the overall stitch pattern. This stitch pattern looks like a difficult one, but if you know how to knit, purl, and slip a stitch, you have all the skills required. Choose colors that pop next to each other, otherwise the pattern will blend and not show.
