Plicate adj - having the surface marked with parallel ridges
This lovely, lightweight hat is marvelously adjustable! It works up quickly in almost any heavy fingering, sport, or light dk yarn and is especially well suited for fuzzy yarns like mohair or alpaca. The hat is written in 5 sizes, and sizing information is included for working at three gauges (4, 4.5, and 5 stitches per inch in stockinette). The combination means you can fit just about any size head you’d like (from toddler up to extra large adult).
The degree of crumple in the back can be altered to fit your taste, and the pattern includes detailed finishing instructions to make it easy to do.
Sample is shown in Gloss Fingering, a fingering weight yarn by Knit Picks in the color Robot (that’s the lighter hat shown on the woman with brown hair), and a 100% alpaca heavy fingering-weight yarn produced by an independent mill (that’s the darker hat shown on the woman with blonde hair). A suggested substitute is shown below.
