High Rises Beanie

Texture! I love textures. In fact, I love any stitch that adds texture to a piece and I had fun making this one. Howbeit, I cracked my brain some with calculating stitches (oh puhleeeezzz, I dislike maths). You do too?

 

 

Though I did not set out to make this design, I did want to use post stitches, just for a different kind of look. However, this is what my hook and yarn decided to create. haha. Sometimes you just go with the flow.

I almost named this beanie High Rises, simply because the way the post stitches align reminds me of the silhouette of tall buildings.

P.S- On further thought, I decided to change the name to High Rises beanie.
