Experimenting with Distitch I developed a new stitch pattern,
which I call DS False rib. It looks like Brioche ribbing, but only
on one side. DS False rib is easier to work than Brioche, when
knitted in the round it only uses knit stitches and knit special
Distitches. It is thick and decorative, which makes it ideal for a
hat.
This hat, using DS False rib in the round, starts with an Italian
cast-on and finishes with a 6-wedge crown.
