Notes: The Skyhill Hat is knit in the round, using slipped sts on the RS and WS of work to create a three-dimensional fabric. Slipped stitches form vertical lines, and are staggered from RS to WS, a smart detail that stands out on the turned up brim of the hat. Bobbles adorn the crown and a little optional tassel finishes off the hat. Double stranded Shadow DK is beautiful marled or using two strands of the same colour.
