A 2015 – 2018 Top 100 Knitting Blog!
Where no hat top has gone before.
This is one of my favorite Nuances, both because it adds a design element where there’s hasn’t been any and because it’s just so darn simple to add to the top of your hat.
I knew the moment it came time to close my very first Showy Decrease hat top I needed a new way to close it up. Why go to all that trouble adding texture and depth just to flatten it out on top? Turns out it also works to smooth out hat tops as illustrated by the dome top of the Yosemite Hat. So it adds interest and reduces bunching. Love it.
