Painted Desert

By Stephannie Tallent

As described by the designer: ‘This quick to knit textured hat really shows off the yarn! It’s worked from the brim up, with various stitch patterns evoking the striations of the different mineral layers in the hills of the Painted Desert. The Chevron Welt Fantastic biases the fabric to let all the other layers ripple.’
