Deco Fans Hat
Deco Fans is inspired by classic art deco wallpaper. Although the stitch pattern looks complex, it features a combination of slipped stitches and simple cabling so colors are worked one at a time. Worked in two colors, the slipped stitches of this pattern provides a great opportunity to pair a semisolid colorway with a highly variegated colorway, or stick with two semisolids for a bold, graphic design.
