The sinuously tessellated motif adorning the Kirigami Pullover has been revisited in the Kirigami Hat. An interplay of knit, purl, and decreased stitches result in high relief texture that casts dramatic shadows at the crown, as if cut and folded into its final form, akin to the technique utilized for its namesake. Work this hat in Arbor for bold heft, or in Peerie for a lighter fabric akin to paper.

This hat, with instructions for using Peerie or Arbor, is worked circularly from the brim to the crown. The allover textural motif is worked from charts only.
