Basic Skills Necessary:

  • working in the round
  • decreasing

Pattern Description:

Honey is a hat inspired by a stitch I saw in a vintage sweater pattern. I adapted it to work in the round and with my yarn/gauge. The decreases are decorative and interesting, as well.

The main stitch pattern has a two-photo explanation, if the written directions are not clear enough. The PDF is 4 pages: title, 2 pages of directions, then a plain-type pattern pattern page for those who don't want to print photos.
