This hat and its companion cowl feature a stitch pattern that resembles turbulent air currents. At first sight, the stitch pattern may look complex, but it’s really a simple pattern repeat, shifted and reversed in a predictable order. Once you get the rhythm of the stitch pattern, you’ll find yourself sailing along with ease.
Stitch pattern provided both as a chart and written instructions.
