Architectural lines and innovative construction elevate an aviator cap you can knit with a single skein of Shelter. Lolo is worked sideways from a provisional cast-on; crown shaping is achieved with short rows while increases and decreases form a sinuous brim that covers the ears. Lines of slipped stitches flow across the garter background to accentuate the shaping and create sculptural shifts in texture. This unisex hat can be knit in multiple sizes by changing needle size and gauge; directions are given for 18” and 20” circumferences. Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to correct excessive angularity.
