Ribbed Hat with Rounded Crown
Designer: Sarah Solomon
Byrne is a simple, allover ribbed hat with a roll-up brim. A five-point crown makes it just a little bit out of the ordinary but still provides a well-rounded shape. Hat begins at brim with a Long-Tail Cast-On and is shaped with single decreases. Both written and charted instructions are included.
