Description

Chiral introduces an element of asymmetry to the Lateralis construction with leaves adorning just one end of each of the distinctive arches. This gives it a more organic feel, while still providing balance and perfect geometric harmony.

The pattern is written for three sizes, with sizing achieved through gauge, and includes tutorials for German Short Rows and Kitchener Stitch.

Featuring short row colourwork, each of the Lateralis Hats is knit sideways and grafted. Unlike other sideways knit Hats, these patterns aren’t constructed from panels, and they will lead you on an altogether different adventure. The pattern is provided as a map for the short rows - a directional chart - that will help guide you through the pattern.
