Cairo Hat is a close fitting hat worked in a textured stitch pattern of moss stitch triangles evoking the monumental pyramids of Egypt. It is worked in the round from the bottom up with a brim of broken rib. The stitch pattern is simple enough for a beginning knitter that is ready to try following a chart, but at the same time keeps the work interesting for an intermediate knitter. Stitch patterns are charted.

Skills Needed:
working in the round
ability to read a chart
sl1, k2tog, psso

Designer note: I am a loose knitter, so please check your gauge before beginning this project. It may be necessary to go up 1 or 2 needle sizes.
