A couple of years ago I bought a childs beret from the saleroom which had a similar motif to this and since then I have always wanted to design a hat which uses the pleasing repetitiveness of an all-over pattern that simply grows into the crown decreases. The colours subtly shade with a bright middle row and the two colourways show how different a pattern appears on a light or dark background.
