Twisted stitches look incredibly elegant popping off the purled background and are most common in Austrian cabled patterns, which inspired this hat. Worked from the brim up with verticals growing organically into the main body and further into the domes of the crown.
The hat pictured was knit using 1 skein Ancient Arts 100% Blue Faced Leicester DK in Blue Persian.
