The intricate details details of the stitch work shown in this gorgeous wave stitch shown in the Waves of Hope Hat. I love the simplicity of the design, a solid look with no interruptions. But, the pop of texture seen in the woven fibers is unbelievable.
The Waves of Hope Hat
My fall back design is hats, I have been designing hats since Sweet Potato 3 began. I love how some can be so unique and have different looks based off of the way you make them: bottom up, top down and side to side.
I try to design a few of each hat types every year. This year I was looking through my top selling patterns and my Button Up Waves Hooded Cocoon kept popping into my mind (check it out HERE). I think it is so popular because of the way the texture in the stitches just pops.
So, I decided to replicate that stitch in a design that you can make for just about anyone of any age, not just infants. The Waves of Hope hat comes in sizes for children up to adults. It’s a simple adjustment to alter the size of the hat. It can be worn slouchy, or just fold the brim for a more traditional look.

I made a quick video tutorial on how to work the Wave Stitch you see in the hat. I think you will love this stitch, just make sure you work those slip stitches loose. Check out the tutorial below:
