VECTOR is a hat pattern that plays with shape and form. The diamond stitch pattern is peppered across a ribbed hat and flows seamlessly from the brim and into the crown shaping. The hat comes with an optional pompom, adding another shape to the fun design.
Worked in a worsted-weight yarn, VECTOR is a fun project for an intermediate knitter.
