Artifact Hat, which features a motif reminiscent of ancient pottery and architectural design, is a versatile pattern suitable for both men and women. This is a lightweight hat accentuated by a folded ribbed band to increase warmth around the ears, an intricate stranded motif, and a little bit of slouch. It offers a great chance to experiment with your favorite semisolid and variegated colorways. No need to catch floats, as no floats exceed five stitches in length!

This pattern is recommended for intermediate level knitters who are comfortable with stranded colorwork, reading from charts, and knitting in the round.
