Inspired by young buds, the main motif of Calyx is reminiscent of sepals just beginning to separate, revealing a glimpse of the petals inside. The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up, starting with a twisted rib brim.

Pattern includes both chart and written instructions.

The Calyx hat was first featured in Knit Now Magazine, Issue 103, June 2019.
