Jen Hagan Design Skep Hat PDF
Part of the Homegrown Hat Collection, the Skep Hat from Jen Hagan Design
resembles an old-fashioned bee skep overflowing with honeycomb. Bees once built
their hives in the skep's underside, a handmade basket of sorts with a
small hole in one side for bee entry and exit, so this Skep is more of an
artist’s interpretation of how one works. They’re much kinder, as is this hat
project with its integrated welts and cables construction. This lovely hat is
knit from the bottom up in the round. The rib and cable pattern is
charted and written out.
