The slipped and twisted stitches in this pattern form a tessellated design of pointed ovals which smartly nestle together. The stitch pattern is relatively simple and easy to follow, but makes the hat an impressive gift. No one will guess that it takes only a few hours to make. Choose a smooth, solid-colored yarn to highlight the raised stitch pattern.
