From the book: “The greater part of this hat is worked in unshaped k2, p2 rib. To achieve a better fit, the crown is shaped by decreases. The decreases used - ssk and k2tog, followed by k3tog and k3tog tbl, and finally p2tog and ssp - are worked so that they don’t interrupt the rib pattern too visibly. The flower brooch is worked on smaller needles because each yarn is used on its own; one yarn is used for each layer. The petals are shaped using k2tog and ssk, and sl2tog-k1-psso.”
