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. The stitch
patterns are charted and written out.
