Modern living seems full of right angles. Wherever you turn, there are corners -- on buildings, windows and doors. More can be found on car bumpers, road junctions, walls and street lamps; they are everywhere. These right angled structures allow the urban sprawl to slot together, forming a connection that contains the hustle and bustle. Rigid and strong and economical on space, they have become a symbol for our crowded towns and cities.
This Hat explores a new way of knitting right angles. Worked on straight needles -- knitted sideways, and then grafted at the end -- the color sections are worked as stripes with some intarsia.
This is an ideal Hat for lovers of angles and straight lines who may be in need of something warm and woolly to soften the edges.
