Kirigami Hat for Brooklyn Tweed

The crown decreases on this hat are beautifully designed. I used Viola sock in the Eclipse colorway

The Brooklyn Tweed Early Fall 2018 collection was published today. I knit the Kirigami Hat by Gudrun Johnson for this collection. It is designed using a motif from an earlier collection and repurposed in the form of a hat. I think it works beautifully here and I love how the crown has a beautiful pattern though the decreases.

The hat is a little deceptive, there is no cabling taking place, but rather the shaping and pattern is made with increases, decreases and knits & purls. I matched the pattern with a brown that leans purple. The hat will be gifted to one of my daughter’s teaches come holiday time and she indicated that she is drawn to the color purple.

I would like to knit up more of these and the pattern which is also written for DK yarn  which would be a quicker knit than the one that I knit in a sock yarn. If I have time in my knitting schedule I will definitely make more.
