Knitting Patterns


Salvia features twisted rib flowing into a cable pattern that continues until the end of the hat crown. Pairs of cable columns cross in opposite directions at staggered intervals, creating a subtle yet lively surface effect. When worn, the ribbed cables open up to show off both texture and shadow. It is knitted in the round, upwards from the brim.
