Affogato Hat

from Sygneture Designs by Sharon Boswell

Affogato Hat

Pattern Description:

What could be better than vanilla ice cream covered in a shot of expresso? A cold head covered in a luxurious alpaca hat perhaps?

Affogato is worked in the round and is suitable for circular needles or DPNs. If you use a small circular for the main body you may wish to change to DPNs for the crown shaping. I worked the sample on a long circular using magic loop throughout.

Affogato begins with a band of stripes in stocking and reverse stocking stitches. The stripes are worked with the travelling jogless stripes technique which is fully described in written form in the pattern, and links for online references are also included if you would like diagrams as well.

The main section of the hat is worked in textured stitch pattern called froth stitch. Its a "make and lose" pattern, and stitch counts are given at the end of each row in which the count changes. There are several plain knit rounds within the pattern repeat which gives a nice balance of ease and interest.
