Tondra has a simple, clever construction: knit as one long tube from a provisional cast-on, it is then folded and twisted before being joined at the ribbing. The twist creates an elegant spiral crown for a hat, showcasing the bold graphic design. As the hat is fully lined, it is wonderfully warm on a windy Shetland day.
