This is the hat sample my husband and I each “fought” to keep for our own!

This hat features an organic wavy textured pattern
that defies the repetitive standard of many knit motifs.
But don’t worry, just as in nature, there is a rhythm to
it; it’s not hard to work it up.

The hat is worked in 4 sections from the bottom up,
decreasing at the crown.
