|Job type||Test knit|
The Plicatum Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up, with irregular ribbing for the brim, which flows up into a textured cable and seed-stitch pattern. The crown decreases are worked in pattern to give a satisfying finish to the top of the hat.
‘Plicatum’ is the Latin word for ‘pleated’, and is used to describe the crinkly leaves of the viburnum plant that inspired the cable pattern in this design.
