Swans Island Open Book Hat PDF
This hat is waiting for your design details and inspirations to take shape on its ground of simple stockinette stitch. For the more creative enthusiast, it calls out for embellishment – duplicate stitches or experimental embroidery; for the minimalist, just leave it plain. The sample hat features an embroidered snowflake, crocheted edging, and two-colored ties with a “sprout” at the crown – creating an understated, yet whimsical look. Follow the instructions as given or dream up your own version. The Open Book hat is a great addition to any knitter’s library, and its flexibility makes customized gift making easy.
