The Calyx hat was first featured in Knit Now Magazine, Issue 103, June 2019.

Inspired by young buds, the main motif of Calyx is reminiscent of sepals just beginning to separate, revealing a glimpse of the petals inside. The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up, starting with a twisted rib brim.

Pattern includes both chart and written instructions.
