The Eye of Partridge Hat is a simple hat that is worked in the round and uses a combination of knit and slip stitches to create a beautiful texture. It uses a light-weight yarn, and it’s perfect for keeping you warm during those chilly fall days.

The stitch used to create the squishy texture is called ‘Eye of Partridge’ and is often used to enforce the heel of a sock. I love the subtle texture it creates and wanted to show off the stitch in a different place than the heel of a sock, which sadly not many will see.
