Knit your own Luxe Hat using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designers Jackie E-S and Laura Andersson for HeartStrings FiberArts.

A simple roll-brim softly frames the face, then three eye-catching Norwegian Braid Bands encircle the main body of the hat. Purl ridges in the decorative crown shaping both define and mask the decrease lines, giving a subtle finish that adds textural interest.
