When I was writing this pattern, I had my cousin, Nikita, in mind. He plays the piano extremely well, and I love knitting so much that I want to share it with everyone! I thought of this pattern while I was thinking about different designs to use in a fair isle technique.
This particular idea came to me when I was thinking of people to knit for. When I thought of Nikita, I immediately thought of the piano. A piano keyboard is a fairly easy pattern to knit in the round, so I decided to try writing a pattern.
Soon enough, I was knitting Nikita’s Piano Hat! I think it was a success and I hope everyone enjoys it!
