Original pattern by Katrin Schubert for Biscotte Yarns, the Spiral Hat is a spiral shaped female hat worked in two-color brioche knitting, inspired by the famous Snail Hat by the wonderful Elizabeth Zimmermann and featuring a self-striping yarn in the foreground and a bright color, or speckled yarn in the background
Pattern is suitable for advanced beginners and young knitters. The hat can be knit in multiple sizes (S, M, L) shown sample hat in size M.
Repetitive increases and decreases are worked every 4 rows only, giving the hat its unusual shape. Stripes appear by using the self-striping yarn.
The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up (brim to crown) with two-color brioche.
