The stitch pattern on the hat is a classic from Barbara Walker’s amazing collection of stitch patterns, which can be found in her stitch dictionaries. I was drawn to the graphic nature of the zigzags. It is made through a combination of slipping stitches while holding the yarn in front of the work, knitting, and purling. I found the stitch pattern mesmerizing as it worked back and forth, and before I knew it, the hat was off the needles.
