The Graham Twist Hat PDF Knitting Pattern


Inspired by Martha Graham (considered the mother of modern dance)’s technique of “twist and untwist,” this hat is a fast and easy brim up construction with only 4 different stitches total. The spirals tighten at the top creating a visually interesting top to the hat. The long tail cast on creates a super stretchy fit; perfect for quickly growing kids.
