Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

The bramble stitch pattern gives this hat a wonderful texture - in dark purple it looks like a ripe blackberry. The stretchy stitch makes this a soft hat that won't smoosh your hair. The hat is knit inside out, and you may even decide to wear it that way on some days - the reverse side is an interesting lacey trellis pattern.
4" = 22 sts and 24 rounds in Bramble Stitch on larger needles (row gauge is not critical for this project)
Note: yarns shown usually knit at 16-18 sts to 4" in Stocking Stitch.
