I got that graphic feelin’…

…at least I must have when I made this hat.  I remember someone saying that their wife would have trouble looking at it for any length of time.

I made this hat quite a while ago, I am not sure exactly when.  It has been kicking around for a long time.  I made it back before I was a real ripper outer because I remember thinking at the time that I should have started the decrease later but it was “too late”.  I wouldn’t do that nowadays…it would be redone within the hour (or whatever length of time the redo took).  Actually I don’t think it is too bad because looking around in the world at large, I see that people have all sorts of preferences for how low hats come, and this would probably be in the wheelhouse of many people that weren’t me.

I started with knit 1 purl 1 rib in maroon and knit for 1 1/2″ (3cm) then increased the number of stitches by 50% and did the larger chequerboard pattern.  I did four repeats then joined back into the cast on row with a rolled rim.  I then decreased back to the original number of stitches and continued up.  I used four double decrease points at the top.
