I love finding new ways to add something different to knitted fabric. This gathered or “ruched” stitch was just the ticket to give this hat a great texture and unique look.

The hat is worked from the bottom up and uses a cable needle to create the ruching, no cables – just some gathering! It is fun to knit and goes very quickly because most of the hat is simply stockinette stitch knitted in the round, with ruching rounds worked every 7 rounds.
