“This pattern was inspired by a hand-painted stool that was made by and handed down through the family. The hat is knitted in the round and the shaping is done in a single color, so it’s good for beginners. I always top my hats with a pom-pom, but the crown is shaped and very softly peaked, so it looks just as good without one.”
