|Yarn Thickness for Pattern||Double Knitting|
Level of Difficulty Beginner/Intermediate, this pattern includes a regular yarn over design and may be worked back and forth or in the round as preferred
This pretty hat is made with a stretchy garter stitch brim with the crown picked up along one edge. The brim is worked in a main colour and then the crown is worked with contrasting stripes, in a simple travelling lacework design.
This hat can be made to measure for larger or smaller heads: note that a longer brim will result in a larger crown. Pisky is constructed by making a stretchy garter stitch band, then picking up along one edge and working decreases towards the crown. It may be worked in the round using a circular needle and magic loop method or 4 double-pointed needles, or more simply back and forth with a seam to complete. It may be completed with a tassel or pom-pom in the Contrast Colour, or left without either, if preferred.
