Dome Mountain



This is a wonderful way to see how shaping can create design lines. Watch the decreases create a gentle swirl that forms the dome of this flattering and wearable hat. Knit at an easy gauge in soft Mountain Merino, this is a quick and satisfying project. Embellish the I-cord top knot with buttons or beads or multiple knots for a hat that’s all you.
