“The Foliage Dot hat employs a unique and interesting stitch pattern that reminds me of autumn leaves. Each “leaf” motif is similar to a bobble, in that several stitches are increased from a single stitch to create each textural leaf. Unlike a bobble, however, the decreasing of these additional stitches is distributed over the following few rounds, rather than being worked all at once.

This whimsical stitch pattern provides a great opportunity for creative colorplay. Experiment with incorporating 2, 3, 4 (or more) contrast colors to create unique color stories. Design your palette using Peerie mini skeins, or raid your yarn scraps to mix and match colors and fibers for a hat that is completely unique.” — designer, Jared Flood
