This deceptively sprawling pattern suggests an all-over maze of city streets – but in fact each panel contains a separate motif. Downtown breaks the rules a little, using slightly longer than usual runs of slipped stitches, but it’s all under control and comes together beautifully at the crown.
Each Hat in the Convergence collection is worked sideways in two colours of DK weight yarn. The patterns can be adjusted for different head circumferences by adding or removing panels, and each pattern also includes an adjustment point for length.
Available as a single pattern or as part of the Convergence collection.
