Kabila designed this hat after the popularity of the Citizen Pullover (mentioned above). She made a smaller, slightly simpler project that lets you experiment with the technique without committing to an entire top. If you want to test this project with a hat or cowl (or both), try these out!
3. Floret Crop Top from Interweave Crochet Spring 2017, designed by Lily Chin

4. Dotty Tunisian Cowl from Interweave Crochet Accessories 2016, designed by Lily Chin
If you love the Floret Crop Top from Lily (mentioned above), but you don’t want to commit to an entire top or you’re trying to use up stash yarn, try your hand at this cowl. It uses the same technique, but it requires less stitching and no sizing knowledge.
5. Heart Throw from Interweave Crochet Home 2015, designed by Lily Chin
Everyone loves a crochet throw for the home! If crochet wearables are not your thing, you can use this technique to make a small blanket. The project is worked from the center out with increases in the corners, so you can use the double-ended hook and work in the round as you increase.
