兜 | Kabuto : Japanese for (n) helmet from from traditional Japanese Samurai Armour circa 16th Century.
This hat uses reverse stocking stitch to provide a monolithic dimension to the knitted fabric, whilst stocking stitch stripes and an assymmetric vertical expressed seam edge provides interest and detail. Short-row shaping at the nape ensures a stylish slouch and fit to the head.
The pattern has 4 sizing options and suitable for either sex.
