Viola


Viola7

Viola is a playfully dotted little hat, which is both fast and fun to knit, and which adds a bit of color to the cold season.

The pattern gives you (me) the perfect oportunity to play with color and yarn choice, and to make as wildly colorful or as harmoniuous a hat as you feel like.

Viola is knit from the bottom op and in the round. It starts with a narrow band of ribbing after which the charted, stranded pattern is knit. The decreases at the top of the hat creates a little swirl that finishes everything of neatly.
