Swans Island Samurai Hat PDF
The Samurai Hat from Swans Island is an infinitely functional design with a simple construction, but its simplicity is enhanced by the unique texture created with holding 4 strands of fingering weight yarn to work garter stitch. The earflaps are worked flat first, then additional sts are cast on and the hat is finished by working in the round.
