This hat is waiting for your design details and inspirations to take shape on its ground of simple stockinette stitch. For the more creative enthusiast, it calls out for embellishment – duplicate stitches or experimental embroidery; for the minimalist, just leave it plain. The sample hat features an embroidered snowflake, crocheted edging, and two-colored ties with a “sprout” at the crown – creating an understated, yet whimsical look. Follow the instructions as given or dream up your own version. The Open Book hat is a great addition to any knitter’s library, and its flexibility makes customized gift making easy.
