Inspired by the subtle variations of colour in the yarn, this design uses cleverly placed slipped stitches to bring out the different colour tones.

The corded rib brim flows into a textured pattern that has a braided appearance before developing into a ribbed crown for a snug fit. The beanie style hat is worked in the round from the brim up.
