See..... I really am designing
Flower Petal Hat
The hat is knit from the top down with 6 sections that swirl around, much like a pinwheel (only in reverse).
Half way down the hat, the stockingette is gradually replaced with reverse stockingette, forming the tips of the flower petals.
The flower petals hug the head all the way down to the brim. A normal ribbing is omitted, instead tiny picots are added at the point of each petal to finish it off.
Pattern to come after I have had some experienced knitters proofread and test knit it!
