Fortune Teller Hat Pattern: knitted
This hat is named "the Fortune Teller Hat" because the top reminds me of an origami paper toy I played with as a child. You ask a question, open and close the fortune teller a certain number of times, then open a flap to reveal the answer.
This pattern is for a knit hat that is made in 4 sections of modified mitered squares. Each section joins on the previous one. Small seams are sewn in each section which create the pointed corners, then stitches are picked up along the bottom edge to circularly knit the bottom band. It is for an intermediate knitter, but really an adventurous advanced beginner should be able to make this as long you can pick up stitches! It is worked on size 3 needles using hand-dyed sport-weight wool yarn.
Suited for Intermediates
