101LCe Pinwheels Berets & Toques

"With an homage to friend and fellow New Yorker Norma Ellman, whose multitude of sectionally-triangled hats were an inspiration," says Chin. These berets (or toques) are begun at the crown and worked back and forth in sections; then the next triangle's stitches are picked up from its edge and worked out from there. It's modular, but in triangles instead of squares or diamonds. The brims are then picked up and knitted down in the round. These fascinating toques (or berets) are worked in chunky yarn and are fabulous at using small quantities of yarn, as well as inventing spectacular new colourways.
