The Fither hat is named after the way my Lancashire Grandma always said feather, which I always found very random and endearing! The twisted stitches remind me so much of feathers and create a beautiful texture.

It may look a little complicated but the stitch pattern is extremely intuitive creating an interesting and relaxing knit. In this pattern you also have multiple options for the width and the depth so you can get the perfect fit from your hat!
