Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. I need help creating a pattern, I saw this guy in the subway yesterday and he had this really nice knitted hat, the guy wasn't bad either :D. Anyways it was a ribbed hat, from what I could see it was yarn of about a worsted weight and the pattern must of had a k2, that much was visible. However I can figure out how to shape the crown. The ribbing gradually got smaller and all the points met at the center forming star shape. But it didn't swirl at the top like the hats I've made. Also what disappeared as you go close to the top was the purl portion of the ribbing, the knit part only got small but none of the knit bands disappeared. Also the ribbing was alternating in checkerboard type pattern, but not to scale.
Does this make sense to anyone or has anyone come across a pattern like this? Or better yet can anyone help me recreate it?
I did a quick sketch but the scanner didn't do such a great job. I did attach it though.
