Funicular Hat PDF
A “Funicular” is a rail car that is run by cables up an inclined plane, usually a mountain side and, worked entirely in the round from the bottom up, the Funicular Hat from Lyrical Knits has inclined lines of colorwork that are formed entirely by short rows. Choose either a short ribbing, or a deeper, folded ribbing to frame the face and keep your ears extra warm. A pom pom and a bit of slouch make the hat both fashionable and fun.
