Inspiration
Sword Art Online is a Japanese light novel series written by Remi Kawahara and illustrated by abec. The series takes place in the near future and focuses on protagonist Kazuto « Kirito“ Kirigaya and Asuna Yuuki as they play though various virtual reality MMORPG worlds. The light novels began publication on ASCII Media Works Dengeki Bunko imprint from April 10, 2009, with a spin-off series launching in October 2012.

Where is Asuna ?
One of the players, named Kazuto « Kirito » Kirigaya, is one of 1,000 testers in the game’s previous closed beta. With the advantage of previous VR gaming experience and a drive to protect other beta testers from discrimination, he isolates himself from the greater groups and plays the game alone, bearing the mantle of “beater”, a portemanteau of “beta tester” and “cheater”. As the players progress through the game Kirito eventually befriends a young girl named Asuna Yuuki, forming a relationship with and later marrying her in-game. After the duo discover the identity of Kayaba’s secret ID, who was playing as the leader of the guild Asuna joined in, they confront and destroy him, freeing themselves and the other players from the game.

About the pattern
Asuna is a hat that knits from the ribs to the top of the hat. To play with the gradient, the hat is knitted with the double yarn taking together the outer yarn and the inside of the ball.
