With a seed stitch band and a twisted stitch pattern, this hat is sure to grab attention. Add a gorgeous button and watch the compliments roll in!

Knit in two parts, this hat features a simple construction for a unique look. First, you knit the seed stitch band flat. Once the button is in place, you’ll pick up stitches to knit the body of the hat. It’s a distinct look and a modern take on Downton Abbey fashions.
