This chapeau was very boring to knit. Eight inches of straight ribbing in navy blue yarn before the crown shaping. At least the crown only took me one evening – I love ever decreasing circles!
Unfolded, it looks an odd shape. Kind of pointy.
Hmmm, the problem with taking photos of a hat on a white background is that I can’t see where the edge of my photo is!
This is the crown, modelled over a bowl. Four decreasing points. A rather unusual decreasing method – knit 1, knit 1, pass the first over the second. More like a bind off really.
Specs: US #5 Denise interchangeables, 3.75mm dpns for the crown; Marks and Kattens Carolina, 100% acrylic yarn, two 50g skeins. Edited to add pattern link.
