The checkerboard hat is all about contrasts. The woven look is made by the juxtaposing bumpy garter stitch against smooth stockinette- creating a highly textured effect without the need to cable. If knit in soft tones the hat looks subtle and classic, while if it's done in bright saturated colours it will look edgy and modern.

I’m 27 and live in northern British Columbia with my beloved boyfriend and Labrador/Bernese Mountain dog Sophie. I've been knitting steadily for about 7 years and mostly gravitate toward knitting cold weather accessories and patterns with interesting elements involved in their design or construction. Lately I’ve really enjoyed creating hat patterns.
