Bas Relief Hat

Bas Relief Hat



The slipped and cabled stitches in this pattern form a tessellated design of pointed ovals which smartly nestle together. The stitch pattern is relatively simple and easy to follow, but makes the hat an impressive gift. Choose a smooth, solid-colored yarn to highlight the raised stitch pattern. Try the Bas Relief Cowl for an easy introduction to the stitch.
