When making a simple ribbed hat for my Grandpa for Christmas, I decided to mess around with the ribbing at the top to try to add some interest. Ultimately Grandpa’s hat didn’t end up that exciting, but it did lead to the development of Forest Rib.
After drawing up a few ideas for the ribbing, I ultimately settled on a four quadrant design. The ribbing in each quadrant is ended at various lengths. The final look reminds me of those pictures looking up at trees and they look all curvy . . .
