This knit dishcloth pattern is a picture of a hat that is just right for Santa or an Elf. It is perfectly proportioned from the brim as it tapers up and curves over to the dangling pompom. The hat is created in garter stitch with a seed stitch brim and a pompom.
The design is not symmetrical so adjustments may be needed by left knitters.
As mentioned, this cloth is different than my others. For those of you familiar with my garter stitch technique of every-other design rows, please note that this picture is created in both garter stitch and seed stitch on a stockinette background. It requires careful attention to the pattern when knitting the seed stitch brim and pompom as every row is a design row. The border is seed stitch, but the pattern is written so that you may substitute a preferred border if you wish.
