Ouellette writes a pattern of such rich, supple detail that reading it is like having a massage; you feel nothing could possibly go wrong, and you relax in good hands. This hat's main band is worked first in a strip, then joined with either a 3-needle bind-off or grafted: your choice-- both are explained thoroughly. The grafting place is shown in detail below. Finishing the crown in the round is equally detailed. This pattern is a splendid investment. Worked in worsted weight yarns, and shown in-- yes-- Noro.
