I am exploring the sideways style at teh moment. I wanted to include tucks or puckers that would tilt the hat and create folds on one side. This is an easy knit in the round(tm) design. You can choose to knit it all in one color or have a contrasting color or yarn define the folds. Instructions are written out for both versions. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl knit in the round k2tog GAUGE 20 stitches = 4 inches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS fits adult 21"
