My second crown jewel, The All Occasions Patchwork Walking Hat is one of the most beautiful hats I’ve ever constructed. The All Occasions Cabled Flat Cap is more complicated in terms of moving parts and seaming, but The All Occasions Patchwork Walking Hat is by far more difficult in the technical department.
The AO Patchwork Walking Hat is intarsia, with a brim of diagonal, traveling intarsia stitching. The pattern comes with a visual chart and plenty of detailed instructions. Once you get a few rows of each panel going, it’s a lot of fun to make.

It’s beautiful, ornate and comfortable.
