A simple two-round stitch pattern creates a striking fabric with banded columns reminiscent of industrial shutters. The beautiful chain detail comes from casting off after the brim, then picking up stitches to work the body.

Tutorials are included for cast-on and cast-off techniques as well as how to pick up the cast-off stitches.
