The lines that form the design on the spindle whorl that inspired this hat were cut into the clay and emphasize the rotation of the whorl. The lines also remind me of a musical score, and thus the name has a double meaning.
While there are two colors, the hat is knit in a solid color, with purl stitches where the contrast color will be filled in later. When the hat is done, either use a crochet hook to fill in the color with chain stitch or embroider the chain stitch, in either case using the existing stitches as a guide.
Further notes on gauge:
If following pattern exactly, 16 stitches and 24 rows over 4 inches [10cm] in stockinette, worked in the round on larger needles. A recipe is provided for yarn with a different gauge and for different sizes.
