VERSACIKNITS Traverse PDF
VERSACIKNITS Traverse is a
toasty hat for cold days with a subtle, interesting pattern. It is knit in the
round using raised slip-stitch; by working half the stitches in each row and
then moving the graduation one stitch at a time, you create a beautiful
herringbone effect. The knitted fabric is tight both horizontally and
vertically, making a dense, warm, garment. Traverse can be worn slouchy, or you
can fold the broad, snug brim back to wear it as a fitted cap. The Traverse Herringbone
stitch is charted and written out.
