Laura Chau Ackert Hook Hat PDF
The Ackert Hook hat by Laura Chau is worked from the top down, with a fun flower pattern that grows from an invisible cast on. Increases and twisted stitches produce subtle stockinette petals against a seed stitch background and the long ribbed band provides a great place to put special buttons! Instructions for both fitted and slouchy styles are included. Stitch patterns are both charted and written out.
