Spiral Knit Hat
This is a pattern designed by Plymouth Yarns. They have given me permission to reproduce it on Ravelry as my Secret Pattern #2. They suggest Encore Colorspun, which gives it a very unique look with reverse stockinette bands of individual color. Any worsted weight yarn that works in stripes would also work. I did only 14 pattern instead of 16 which made it a little more snug. The hat when you have finished knitting it will look like a Parallelogram. Once you sew the long sides together with the Kitchener Stitch and gather up one end of the tube you will have a very unique hat.
You could also reduce the cast on by 10 stitches, finish it, then PU on the bottom edge with an eyelash type yarn and knit in garter or rib to give it a fuzzy band.
Thank you Plymouth Yarns for allowing me to use the pattern for my second secret pattern.
