While bias knitting is particularly suited to variegated yarn, Lamitra’s eyelet rows set against a smooth stocking stitch ground are equally eye-catching in a solid. The full gathers at the crown only add to the spiral effect.

Four sizes are provided, along with illustrated tutorials for the provisional cast-on, Kitchener stitch and short rows.
