My Parallelogram Hat is inspired by a concept building in Singapore that has a facade of tessellating parallelograms that flip back and forth. I first knitted this hat to take on a long holiday to China in the winter and it got a lot of wear. I’ve already knitted another three and have plans to make more!

It’s a great one ball, quick knit, for a slouchy beanie with a fun geometric pattern.
