The Turn a Square Pattern from Brooklyn Tweed is a classic, striped, scraptastic beanie that works up quickly in worsted weight Shelter. Featuring four “compass point” decrease lines, the crown visually bends circles into squares, giving this hat its playful namesake. Invert your colors and knit a second hat from the same skeins for a coordinated set. Surprisingly simple jogless stripes turn this basic into an elevated last-minute gift, or a quick solution to cold temperatures for your own wardrobe.
Hat is worked in the round from the bottom up.
