Deann is named after my best knitting friend, who just loves to make hats and mitts. Matching fingerless mitts pattern also available.
The hat is packed with a variety of textured stitches, starting with a cloche-like band that is worked flat and joined, then stitches are picked up from the band with the rest of the hat worked in the round. A decorative tab feature on the end of the band is embellished with a button, to set the hat off.
Pattern also includes instructions for a Sibling Version which keeps all the texture of the original, with a less elaborate brim and top.
Skills required: working flat, picking up stitches, working in the round, knit and purl stitch patterns, decreases.
Yardages are generous to allow for more pattern repeats if required.
