Poofy Ribs

a new hat design by Carol Sunday

Poofy Ribs

Dropping stitch on this ribbed hat is not only fun, but creates an interesting poofy texture. It reminds my of large airy seed pods in the fall, like the ones on the wild cucumber vines that climb over our fences near the edge of the woods.

With a ribbed hem ...

... and a little shaker stitch for interest near the crown
