Hat Description

Chesser is a garter stitch pixie Hat with a unique construction. The body is worked flat in garter stitch. Between the body and crown there are curlicues spaced evenly around the beanie. The crown is worked in stocking stitch and features visible decrease lines that curve slightly. It decreases slowly for a slightly pixie shape, and is then topped with additional curlicues.
