Matrix Hat by Jessie At Home ~ Free Knit Pattern

Matrix Hat
Free Knit Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This fun hat got its name for the falling knit stitches that remind me of the falling code in the Matrix movies. Quick, easy, and unisex, this hat is great for gifts! The ribbed brim is made to be folded up, to add extra warmth around the ears.
