If you're looking for a fabulous modern hat to knit for the holidays this year, this should definitely rank highly on your list. The Fractals Hat takes the cozy knitted beanie and makes it hip with stylish geometric shapes and suggested color schemes that pop.
This gorgeous hat was knit in Cricket. Two samples are shown - one in Maple and Hyacinth (above), and the other in Seaside and Ducky (below).
As Olga draws her inspiration from sources like fine art, architecture, and runway fashion, her designs reflect both trends and classic styles. At the same time, her designs are really wearable - you don't need to walk the runway to enjoy them. You'll notice an attention to detail in her designs that brings an elegance to a seemingly simple piece. Even the inside of the hat is gorgeous! Olga posted a picture on Instagram of the reverse of the colorwork.
Here is what Olga has to say about the pattern:
Colorwork on this hat is inspired by fractals geometry occurring in nature. It is created combining neutral and neon colorways together into triangles starting at the brim. Then they progressively increase in size, forming the allover pattern. The colorwork is also integrated into crown-shaping and makes this hat an eye-catching accessory from all angles. Accompanied with Tubular cast on and ribbed brim this hat conveniently comes in 2 sizes.
