I wanted to design a three-dimensional statement hat that was not too complicated to knit. Voilà, Spikes was born. The hat is knit bottom-up, the spikes are constructed by simple increases and decreases paired with a tight gauge. There are no short rows involved.

To fit 51 (56, 61) cm head circumference.

Techniques used in this pattern:

  • knitting in the round
  • increasing
  • decreasing
  • grafting
